Terror on the Tube
An explosion hit a London subway train Friday morning, injuring 18 people, in what police are treating as a terrorist incident. Police said an improvised explosive device detonated on the train at Parsons Green station in West London. Witnesses described a burst of flames and scenes of panic during the morning rush. Emergency services said none of the injured are in serious or life-threatening condition. London’s top counterterrorism police officer said most of the injuries were flash burns.
The GOP Resistance
Top congressional Republicans signaled Thursday they wouldn’t be pressured into enacting an immigration framework reached between President Trump and top Democrats, as conservatives reacted with alarm to reports of a fledgling deal to protect young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children. The framework marked the second time in a week that Mr. Trump bypassed his party and dealt directly with Democrats. The president, who ran on a hard-line immigration platform, jolted many of his own supporters by agreeing to pair legal status for the group of young people—often called “Dreamers”—with enhanced border-security measures. Mr. Trump also agreed that the package would omit funding for his promised wall on the border with Mexico. He said nothing about including other enforcement measures aimed at finding and deporting people living illegally in the U.S. After President Trump said House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell were “on board” with his approach, the GOP leaders said negotiations would take on a broad set of immigration issues, including enforcement measures beyond border security.
Soft Money SoftBank is nearing an ambitious deal to take a substantial stake in Uber—but only if the Japanese technology investor can persuade shareholders to sell enough stock at a steep discount. After weeks of deliberation, Uber’s board in recent days has been hashing out its response to a potential investment led by SoftBank that could total as much as $10 billion. If successful, that would be among the largest single investments in a private venture-backed startup. It would also give SoftBank—whose chief executive, Masayoshi Son, has predicted that companies such as Uber will transform the world—major stakes in nearly all the world’s top ride-hailing companies. Elsewhere, Google parent Alphabet has held talks to invest about $1 billion in Lyft, which would further an alliance against Uber.
Missile Launch For the second time in a month, North Korea fired a missile over Japan, defying rising international efforts to force it to abandon course. In a rare move, South Korea responded by immediately conducting a simulated strike of the North Korean launch site, an air base near Pyongyang. In Japan, alerts were sent early Friday local time to smartphones of people living in areas where the missile was projected to pass over soon after the launch had been detected. No injuries or damage were reported. The launch was of a shorter-range projectile that wouldn’t be able to reach the U.S. mainland. The U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting Friday at the request of the U.S. and Japan. A new violation by Pyongyang had been anticipated in response to the Security Council’s adoption of new sanctions Monday, some diplomats said, raising the stakes for finding a diplomatic solution.

Responding to yesterday’s question on the immigration agreement taking shape between Democrats and President Trump,Penny Freimark of New Jersey said: “It should be no deal unless the Democrats are willing to fund a wall…we would just have more illegal aliens enter our country. What kind of compromise would that be? Mr. Trump had better stay firm on his promise.” Catherine Learoyd of Texas shared: “The wall of water we’ve just experienced in Harvey and Irma should have our priority, not a wall of hate and exclusion. It is high time to get DACA settled and move on to rebuilding our soggy infrastructure.” And Daniel Souza of Connecticut commented: “Hooray! Finally, the longstanding and maddening logjam in Washington could be broken. We need to get things going, one way or another, whatever it takes. For critics of Mr. Trump like myself, he could very well turn out to be the broken clock that still tells the right times twice a day.”
