House Speaker Mike Johnson and Former President Trump are at Mar-a-Lago in Florida talking "election interference." Johnson said election integrity is tied to border security because the Biden administration is encouraging illegal aliens to register for benefits. Johnson says once that happens you can also register to vote. Johnson added he's going to introduce legislation requiring voters prove they are Americans. Trump said the upcoming election the most important in the history of our nation.        Authorities say one person is dead after the driver of a stolen 18-wheeler has intentionally crashed into a Texas DPS office. DPS officials say at least 14 people were hurt after the truck crashed into the office in Brenham. DPS says the driver has been arrested and was angry he was denied a commercial driver's license yesterday.        Vice President Kamala Harris is in Arizona today after the state supreme court upheld a near-total ban on abortions that was put in place 160 years ago. She's in Tucson [[ Too-sahn ]] for an event focusing on abortion and the Biden administration's efforts to keep abortion legal. She told the crowd the fight for abortion is a fight for freedom. Arizona is considered a battleground state in this year's election, which President Biden narrowly won in 2020.        There are new security warnings for Americans in Israel. The U.S. Embassy in Israel issued a security alert restricting travel for government employees and their families outside certain areas "until further notice." This comes after reports Iran will launch a retaliatory strike on Israel after an area near its embassy in Syria was targeted.        Longtime PBS news anchor Robert MacNeil has died at the age of 93.
