Good morning. I'm David Greene. So I had no idea what a fatberg was. It's like an iceberg, but it's made of waste that accumulates inside sewers.

Why don't we go right over to the dissents? Because I believe we have a dissenting opinion, not one of the justices but someone on the losing side of the case on the line.

A few weeks into his presidency, Donald Trump invited executives from Harley-Davidson to meet with him at the White House. He wanted to highlight the company as a model for American-based manufacturing.

When President Trump talks about border security, he often mentions MS-13, a violent gang that got its start in Los Angeles in the 1980s. Here's the president talking to a crowd in South Carolina last night.

SCOTUS

A major U.S. Supreme Court ruling last week could force New Hampshire businesses to collect a sales tax on behalf of other states.

The ruling in the case of South Dakota v. Wafair overturned more than 50 years of legal precedent. The decision is seen as a blow to New Hampshire businesses, which say collecting a sales tax on behalf of other states is burdensome.

Morning Edition Host Rick Ganley spoke with Taylor Caswell, a commissioner at the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs, about how the state plans to respond.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

The U.S. says it has reunited more than 500 migrant children that the government separated from their parents. That means there are about 2,000 children to go. Officials say they have a plan, though parents and their advocates tell a different story.

On Sunday, a Department of Homeland Security bus pulled up outside Annunciation House, a shelter for migrants and refugees in El Paso, Texas. Parents filed off and walked into the shelter. Some wore their pant legs rolled up, exposing GPS ankle monitors.
