Manchin is not opposed to a legalization program; in fact, he has said that he is "totally committed to trying to help" immigrants - but he does not think we should be establishing a legalization program while we are in the midst of a border crisis.

Judges express deep skepticism of Trump's argument Clark and Millett also sparred over hypothetical scenarios in which an incumbent and their predecessor might disagree on whether information should be released to the public or to another branch of government.

Moore had been the leading candidate by a wide margin in the first round of voting on Nov. 2 among 14 candidates in a nonpartisan race.
