Today, President Biden met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus at the White House amid renewed calls for police reform legislation. The Oval Office meeting came a day after the funeral of Tyre Nichols, a 29-year-old Black man who died after being beaten by police in Memphis. Leading Black lawmakers urged Biden to make the case for police reform in his upcoming State of the Union address.

On Capitol Hill, the House voted along party lines to bar Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from serving on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, passing a resolution that condemns her for past antisemitic remarks.
