(News analysis) New Haven plans to join communities across the country suing the Trump administration if it follows through on a vow to take federal money away from “sanctuary cities” that refuse to help track down and deport undocumented immigrants. In doing so, the city will enter some uncharted legal territory.
By a 2-1 vote, the National Labor Relations Board denied a request by Yale for an “expedited review” of a decision that allowed nine “micro-units” of graduate students to vote in unionizing elections Thursday.
State police claim in newly released reports that an ambulance crew did indeed save the life of a patient while stuck in traffic at a New Haven protest and that the driver of another vehicle had to be helped through the crowd to ferry a “panicked” and “hysterically crying” pregnant woman to the hospital in time to deliver her baby.

It turns out that protesters blocking a state highway may not have prevented an ambulance crew from getting a “critically ill” patient to the hospital, after all — at least as the ambulance company tells it.
