MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From the latest in the immigration ban to Queen Elizabeth’s long reign, here are the four stores to know for Monday, Feb. 6.
Immigration Ban Latest
President Donald Trump will address troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida Monday. This, as a federal appeals court in San Francisco hears from the Justice Department, along with lawyers from Minnesota and Washington state over his travel ban. A judge denied the government’s emergency request to resume the controversial order yesterday after it was blocked by a Seattle judge. With the order temporarily suspended, travelers from the countries affected rushed to return to the U.S.

Queen Elizabeth’s Long Reign
Queen Elizabeth II will make history by celebrating her Sapphire Jubilee. The queen has ruled the UK for 65 years since the day her father, King George 6th, died suddenly. She is set to wear a blue dress, sapphires and diamonds that he gave her. Today is also the anniversary of King George’s death.
