Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pled not guilty to setting off a pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs along with his 26 year-old brother Tamerlan at the race's crowded finish on April 15. The bombing attack killed three people and injured about 264. Tsarnaev is also accused of killing a campus police officer, three days later when they prepared to flee Boston. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in an overnight gunbattle with police after killing the officer. President Barack Obama jumped into the immigration debate on Wednesday, releasing a report touting economic benefits from reforms and meeting with Hispanic lawmakers, as House of Representatives Republicans gathered to try to craft their response. The release of the White House report signaled a new outspokenness by Obama, who made immigration a top legislative priority but stayed on the sidelines of the debate that raged in the Senate in May and June. The report said passing reforms would grow the economy by 3.3 percent by 2023 and reduce the deficit by almost $850 billion over 20 years. The Federal Aviation Administration said it plans to increase-the-number-of-flight-hours required for co-pilots on U.S. passenger and cargo airlines to boost safety. less
