ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are advising parents to keep their teenagers from loitering in downtown St. Louis after two dozen people, mostly juveniles, were arrested over the weekend.
Twenty juveniles and four adults are facing charges after police received complaints Saturday night that large groups of young people were blocking traffic and sidewalks in the area around Broadway and Market.
The juveniles were charged with disturbing the peace. The adults were charged with peace disturbance and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The federal Social Security Administration now says that its investigators were not able to read an electronic list of concealed gun permit holders from Missouri.
In an email Monday, a spokesman for the federal agency says it distributed incorrect information last week when it said the disk was read before it was destroyed. The agency's retraction came after Missouri Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer held a news conference Monday recounting what he had been told about the disk by the agency's inspector general.
The miscommunication highlights the confusion about an issue that has been a growing concern among Republican lawmakers. They fear gun owners' privacy rights were violated when the Missouri State Highway Patrol provided the list of permit holders to a federal investigator.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Marco Rubio says a proposed immigration bill expected to be introduced this week won't offer amnesty to those who entered the U.S. illegally.
The Florida Republican, who appeared on five news shows Sunday, says "there will be consequences for having violated the laws."
Rubio's proposal would require people to pass a "rigorous background check" and pay fines and application fees to receive a permit that would allow them to "work, travel and pay taxes." After 10 years they would be able to apply for legal immigration status and an eventual path to citizenship.
Under the proposal, the applicants would not be eligible for any federal benefits such as health care.
