Last night, though, he jumped into the debate, calling for various steps to be taken to address the crisis and delivering a stern warning to his fellow Republicans. “President Obama has promised to once again act unilaterally if Congress fails to take up immigration reform,” he said in a Wall Street Journal op-ed co-written with Clint Bolick, a vice president with the Goldwater Institute and the co-author, with Bush, of a 2013 book on immigration reform.

Many iPhone 6 reports have claimed the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model is delayed, as Apple has been experiencing various production issues related to battery size, new display with in-cell touch sensors, or the sapphire front panel. But according to a new report, it appears that’s not why Apple may want to delay the phablet.
