Breaking News Headlines: Obama Visits Prison Where Mandela Was Jailed

by Wochit 0:59 mins

After touring Nelson Mandela's prison cell on Robben Island, President Obama lauded Mr. Mandela, South Africa's first black president, for his courage and refusal to yield to injustice. In the foreword to Nelson Mandela?s 2010 book of letters, President Obama wrote that ?even when little sunlight shined into that Robben Island cell, he could see a better future ? one worthy of sacrifice.? A court spokeswoman said that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy denied a bid to stop gay marriages in California, one day after opponents of same-sex unions petitioned the high court to re-impose the state's ban. Republican Trey Gowdy and Democrat Luis Gutierrez are forging a new friendship around immigration reform, and their bond could help the House reach a deal on the contentious issue.
