Here are the 6 Things you need to know before you start your day on this Friday, August 10, 2018:
1:Attorney General Jeff Sessions will make a stop in Houston this morning to talk about his ongoing efforts to fight violent crimes.
His trip may be overshadowed by a federal judge’s threat to hold Sessions in contempt of court.
This is due to a deportation battle involving a mother and her daughter who were on a plane headed back to Honduras after being deported.
While in the air, a Federal judge ordered the plane to go back to Houston where the mother and daughter were taken back into ICE custody.
2:Texas Senator Ted Cruz will be in Killeen today to get an update on Fort Hood training and visit with soldiers.
It’s part of Senator Cruz’s statewide Texas Defends America Tour.

Then he will head to Killeen around 3:45 and give a press conference.
