1. Supreme Court Curbs Environmental Protection Agency's Power To Protect Environment NPR 14:16

The Supreme Court limited the ways in which the EPA could regulate greenhouse gas pollution from power plants, jeopardizing President Biden’s goal for an emissions-free power sector by 2035.

And the high court sided with the Biden administration in a case concerning the White House’s decision to end the so-called “Remain in Mexico” policy. The Trump-era policy had required asylum seekers to either be detained in the U.S. or sent to Mexico where while they wait for months or years to have their asylum claims reviewed. Now, Biden will be allowed to end the policy.

This episode: White House correspondent Scott Detrow, national political correspondent Mara Liasson, climate reporter Laura Benshoff, and immigration reporter Joel Rose.
