.@GeoffRBennett asked Biden if he thinks he can pass voting rights in its current form w/ Senate filibuster. Biden said, “I can talk to you about that later.”
Note: @WhipClyburn said senators need to find a way around the filibuster when it comes to voting and civil rights.
Julissa Reynoso, chief of staff to first lady Jill Biden, says the group of WH officials who went to the border spoke to officials on the ground and to immigrant children held in facilities. She said they plan to brief the president on it and haven't done so yet.
NEW: CDC says fully vaccinated people can gather with those at low-risk for virus without masks, but should cover face in public.
Fully vaccinated means two weeks after receiving second dose of Pfizer or Moderna or two weeks after one dose of J&J.

Rep. Clyburn: "There's no way under the sun that in 2021 that we are going to allow the filibuster to be used to deny voting rights."
"If Manchin and Sinema enjoy being in the majority, they had better figure out a way to get around the filibuster."
Thinking of Amelia Boynton, mother of the voting rights movement. Seen below being beaten because she fought for Black people to live in dignity. Grateful to have interviewed her in her home, and for her to see and bless SELMA. She went to glory at age 104 in 2015. What a hero.
My latest: Ciera Bates Chamberlain has had 4 family members on ventilators. Glenn Harston lost his aunt & 15 family members think they have COVID-19. An intimate look at the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on black ppl & communities of color.
