"I hope those responsible in Washington can dial down the rhetoric, put politics aside and modernize our immigration laws soon," Bush added.

In 2018, he also criticized the current administration’s stance on immigration, such as Trump’s attempts to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (better known as DACA), which stops thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from being deported.

“America’s their home,” he said of DACA recipients while speaking at a summit in Abu Dhabi, according to The Hill.

Innovative Artists & Luber Roklin Sign ‘Extraction’ Actor Rudhraksh Jaiswal

Susan Rice Sells Netflix Shares Days Before Joe Biden Chooses Running Mate

Susan Rice, the former national security advisor who is considered a strong contender to be Joe Biden’s running mate in the presidential election, has sold shares in Netflix worth $305,323.

Her exercising of options was completed on Wednesday, according to an SEC filing late Thursday. Rice has been on the Netflix board since May 2018.

Biden is expected to name his vice presidential pick next week.

“Ambassador Rice’s sale of a fraction of her Netflix stock has nothing to do with VP speculation,” her spokesperson, Erin Pelton, said in a statement. “She filed a stock plan pursuant to SEC regulations over three months ago.”

The option price of Netflix shares at the point of the sale was $508.68. The stock has surged as high at $575 this year as COVID-19 has spurred the addition of 26 million subscribers in the first six months of 2020. On Friday, shares were down 4% at about $488.

Under her board compensation package, Rice gets 125 stock options a month.

In 2016, Rice said in a federal disclosure that her net worth was between $14.7 million and $28.5 million. Prior to her stint as President Obama’s national security advisor, she was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and worked as a McKinsey consultant early in her career.

When Rice joined the Netflix board, she called it “a cutting-edge company whose leadership, high-quality productions, and unique culture I deeply admire.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci says chance of coronavirus vaccine being highly effective is 'not great'

White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday the chances of scientists creating a highly effective vaccine — one that provides 98% or more guaranteed protection — for the coronavirus are slim.

Scientists are hoping for a coronavirus vaccine that is at least 75% effective, but 50% or 60% effective would be acceptable too, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a Q&A with the Brown University School of Public Health. "The chances of it being 98% effective is not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach."
