The U.S. Women's national soccer team is back in action today at the FIFA Women's World Cup in France.  Team USA will clash with Spain in the Round of 16 this morning.  The Americans have yet to allow a goal in three World Cup matches so far.  Team USA is looking to repeat as women's World Cup champions after winning it all in 2015. 

Immigration raids in cities across America, including in locations like Denver, are being postponed by President Trump.  He says he made the move at the request of Democrats, because he wants to give them every last chance to address immigration issues.  The Denver Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships responded to the threat of raids, saying it's sickened by the use of immigrant families as pawns in a political game. 

The Colorado Latino Festival is being rescheduled after organizers postponed it due to the threat of immigration raids.  The festival was scheduled for Sunday in Boulder, but organizers announced Saturday morning they were calling it off.  After that announcement, President Trump tweeted that he was delaying the scheduled raids for two weeks.  A new date for the festival has not been announced.
