Britain's new prime minister, first responder vote, Justice Stevens' funeral: 5 things to know Tuesday  3 Weeks ago

Boris Johnson was named as Britain's next prime minister Tuesday in the conclusion of the ruling Conservative Party's runoff election between the pro-Brexit politician and his opponent, Jeremy Hunt. Johnson is regarded as an eccentric, gaffe-prone populist who draws comparisons to President Donald Trump. Hunt, meanwhile, has a reputation as a steady pair of hands, but his commitment to delivering the country's exit from the European Union – Brexit – had been questioned. (Here's what you need to know about the candidates and what the election could mean for Britain and the U.S.) Current Prime Minister Theresa May will formally submit her resignation to Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday.

A bill to reauthorize a fund to compensate victims of 9/11 is scheduled to come to a vote in the Senate on Tuesday. The House passed its version of the bill on July 12 with a 402-12 vote, but the Senate version was delayed last week by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., because he objected to the cost of the bill. Comedian, writer and activist Jon Stewart last month gave an impassioned speech during a hearing on Capitol Hill criticizing lawmakers for not passing the bill to reauthorize the fund sooner. Several 9/11 first responders also testified. One of the responders, Luis Alvarez, died several days later at the age of 53.

The Department of Homeland Security's expanded authority to allow the expedited removal of undocumented immigrants who can't prove they have been in the U.S. continuously for at least two years is set to go into effect Tuesday. The change, announced Monday, is the latest move in the Trump administration's attempts to crack down on illegal immigration by vastly expanding DHS's ability to deport certain immigrants while circumventing due-process protections that most other people receive, including the rights to an attorney and a hearing before a judge. This comes despite courts in the 9th Circuit previously upholding some due process protections for undocumented immigrants. The administration's decision was met by immediate backlash from opponents, including the American Immigration Council.

A private funeral will be held Tuesday for former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the third longest-serving justice in history who died last week at the age of 99. The Navy veteran of World War II will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. On Monday, Stevens' coffin rested at the Supreme Court's Great Hall in Washington, where mourners paid their respects. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump, retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy and five current justices —Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — attended the morning service. At the service, Kagan publicly noted Stevens' "extraordinary judicial wisdom" and said he was "unsurpassed by any other modern justice." 

A tropical depression has formed in the Bahamas, the National Hurricane Center announced Monday afternoon. The depression is expected to remain weak, with its primary impact being about 1-3 inches of rain across eastern Florida on Tuesday. "On its current forecast track, the center of the depression should remain just offshore of the east coast of Florida over the next day or so," the hurricane center said. However, vacationers aboard cruise ships may not enjoy the ride.
