California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris set to toss hat into presidential ring: Sources

Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Wednesday over a recent report that indicated she did not know about a harassment settlement involving one of her top advisors.

Harris, who is among the most anticipated of the potential Democratic challengers to Trump, has chose to run and will make her announcement on or near the Martin Luther King holiday, CBS News reported Thursday. Day on January 21, or shortly after.

Harris has been on tour recently promoting her new memoir, "The Truths We Hold: An American Journey", a milestone for many recent major party nominees for president. Harris said she was unaware of her office's work and was "shocked" to read about it in the newspaper.

"If she really has made a decision to run", said Sragow, "my advice would be, announce".

Harris stands to make history when she does announce her run - as the both the first African American woman and the first Indian American woman to run for the White House. And so the pundits can talk all day, and all night, and there's a lot of chatter about which demographic will do this or that. It has been my life's experience that the American people are smart and they make decisions about what's in the best interest of their household, their family and their community. "And I have faith that in 2020, and in any other election, that will be their motivation when they vote".

Pres. Trump says changes coming on high-tech visas
The United States grants 65,000 H-1B visas every year and an additional 20,000 visas for those with a master's degree or higher. The Republican president has often said he wanted an immigration system that favoured educated or highly skilled people.

The government has shut down because of the US Congress' refusal to grant funds to the Trump administration for the president's pet border wall project.

In 2014, the California Attorney General's Office opposed releasing nonviolent California inmates-part of the state's compliance with a 2011 Supreme Court ruling that found its prison system was unconstitutionally overcrowded-arguing that "if forced to release these inmates early, prisons would lose an important labor pool".

Harris said that as a leader of the #MeToo movement, "it was a very painful experience to know that something could happen in one's office of nearly 5,000 people, granted, but that I didn't know about it".

"(Trump) is choking the very people who are responsible for making sure we have public safety on a day-to-day basis", she said, referring to the thousands of unpaid workers, including members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "That's a sad statement", she added.
