Friday's ruling cleared the way for the trump administratio n to use about two and a half billion dollars in defense department money for sections of the wall along the border with mexico.

In a statement, house speaker nancy pelosi said the decision ''undermines the constitution and the law.'' the trump administratio n also signed a deal friday with guatemala, requiring migrants who travel through that country to seek asylum there instead of in the united states.

''we're sending a clear message to human smugglers and traffickers that your day is over.'' on saturday, president trump also had a message for maryland representativ e elijah cummings, who is overseeing investigations into reported inhumane conditions at border detention facilities.

In a series of tweets, the president said ''cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men women of border patrol about conditions at the southern border, when actually his baltimore district is far worse and more dangerous.'' democrats, including presidential candidates joe biden and kamala harris, are coming to the congressman' s defense...calli ng the president's tweets disgraceful and despicable.

The otters have posted a record of ?5 since the allstar break.

After a ?0 shut out last night... evansville was looking for more of the same in this one.

We begin in the opening frame... tyler vail on the hill for the otters and he opens the game with back to back punchouts for a scoreless inning.

Moving to the bottom of the fourth the otters go to work on offense... runners on second and third for david cronin... and he lines a hit into center field... coming in and scoring on the play are elijah macnamee and hunter cullen... the otters are back in front.

Next man up is keith grieshaber... he goes the other way down the line in right... keeping it just fair... cronin scores from second... and evansville adds on to their lead.

The otters win ?3.

In the second set..

Min works a big first serve to get arawka off balance...then starts to work her sid?

T?side... and arawaka can't quite keep up on the base line... as min advances to the title match..

Winning ?5, ?0.

The second semifinal would feature the top seed... israel's deniz khazaniuk (de?eez ka??

Nook) going up against 17 yea?old unseeded american natasha subhash (so?

Bash).

Khazaniuk fails to put the point away with her first opportunity... however subash gives her another... and the 24 yea?old israeli takes care of it with the overhead smash.

Khazaniuck would take the first set ?2.

After falling behind ?0 in the second set... subash would battle... however the top seeded khazniuk would have none of it... reeling off the last two games to earn a spot in tomorrow's championship ... winning ?2, ?3.

And we end tonight on the golf course at the fedex st jude invite.... we begin with marc leishman..

On 16 and a par 5... leishman taking his third shot..

And he pitches up to the green and rolls his ball in for eagle..

He finishes the day at 9 under par.

Next up we have brooks koepka..

On the second hole... kopeka lands his approach shot on the fringe... and spins the ball back to within a few feet of the pin.

He would make birdie to get to 6 under par.

On 11..

Koepka sinks the long range birdie putt... and that moves him to 10 under on the day.

Then on 15 kopeka drops the bending birdie putt..

He finishes his day at 11 under and just 1 shot back of the lead.

And we end with rory mcilroy..

On the first hole..

He sticks his approach shot close to the hole... after he makes birdie he is at 5 under.

On 14... mcilroy plants his tee shot close to the flag stick... he would make birdie and move to 9 under on the day.

And finally... on 18... mcilroy buries the long range birdie putt to complete his day... he finishes with a flurry and has a one shot lead at 12 under heading into the final round.
