Kasich to speak at Harvard


Ohio Gov. John Kasich will address the 2018 graduates of the Harvard Kennedy School in May, the school announced.

The address will take place at 2 p.m. on May 23.

Douglas W. Elmendorf, dean of the Kennedy School, told the Harvard Crimson that Kasich was invited because of his lifelong commitment to public service.

“We look for people who have made important contributions to public policy and who can convey to our graduating students and their parents and family members a vision of what people going into public service can do in the world,” Elmendorf told the newspaper.

Past Kennedy School graduation speakers include former Secretaries of State John Kerry and Madeleine Albright, the newspaper said.

How will the battle over dreamers end? Here are four scenarios

A deadline to protect hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants is less than two weeks away, and it's looking less and less likely that Washington will act in time to protect them.  So, where does that leave the estimated 700,000 "dreamers" who could face deportation as soon as March 5?  There are a few possibilities...
