The Ross Report for Wednesday, February 22: new immigration rules; CO raising penalty for texting and driving; innovations in package and postal delivery

The Department of Homeland Security has released new guidelines on who they will process for deportation. One notable category: An illegal alien who has been charged with, or even suspected of, a crime, even if not convicted of the crime. Interestingly, DHS Secretary John Kelly has also ordered his department to research the amount of money the US government gives in aid to Mexico. Subtle!

It's looking fairly likely that Colorado will pass a law substantially increasing the penalties for texting and driving, but with a caveat: that to be penalized the driver will also have to have been driving recklessly. Some stories on the bill, the politics behind it, and its actual text:
