Egypt tries again to broker a Mideast cease-fire deal. An immigration protest erupts in Texas. And Dick Cheney says don't impeach Obama.
It's Wednesday and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day
1. MIDEAST CRISIS
No cease-fire agreement: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will travel to Egypt today to meet with the President to discuss another possible cease-fire in the conflict between Israel and Hamas. Yesterday's didn't last very long. Civilians of Gaza are bearing the brunt of the conflict, which has killed more than 200 Palestinians and one Israeli in a little over a week.
2. WHITE HOUSE-ISSA STANDOFF
Subpoena snub: House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and the White House are at loggerheads over a presidential adviser. Issa's committee subpoenaed David Simas to testify about his duties as the White House Director of Political Strategy. They want see if he's in violation of the Hatch Act, which bars most federal employees from engaging in partisan political activities. The White House says Simas won't be there.
3. HOT CAR MOM
Media focus: The attorney for Leanna Harris, the mother of the 22-month-old toddler who died in a hot car near Atlanta last month, compares his client to Olympic park bombing suspect Richard Jewell. Jewell was hounded in the aftermath of the bombing, but was later vindicated. Police say her husband, Justin Ross Harris, left Cooper strapped into a car seat in his SUV for seven hours while he went to work on June 18. Harris has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and child cruelty. He remains in jail. Leanna Harris has not been charged.
Protests: In Washington, the battles over immigration are being fought on Capitol Hill. But in the rest of the country, they're being waged on Main Street. Oracle, Texas, is the latest flashpoint, pitting those with open arms for immigrants against those who want them deported. There's no quick solution to the problem.
Jose Vargas: Immigrant rights activist and filmmaker Jose Vargas was detained yesterday in McAllen, Texas. He was on his way way to board a flight from Houston to Los Angeles. Vargas was released and told to report to an immigration judge. He has been living the United States without documentation since 1993.
5. CHENEY ON OBAMA
Don't do that: Former Vice President Dick Cheney may not like President Barack Obama, but doesn't see the need to impeach him either. In a CNN interview, he said calls by conservative Republicans to do just that are a distraction. However, he is fine with the GOP suing the President over what they see as his use of executive orders to bypass Congress and implement policy.
