Today is day six of the search for a missing submarine belonging to the Argentine navy. The craft was last heard from on Wednesday somewhere in the Atlantic. Here’s what else you need to know to Get Up to Speed

 

Sanctuary cities 
A federal judge has permanently blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so-called sanctuary cities, or cities that limit cooperation with US immigration authorities. Trump signed that order in January, right after taking office, and it was designed to crack down on immigration by financially punishing cities who, in the words of the President, “harbor illegal immigrants.” Some of the biggest cities in the country have such practices, including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Critics of the order say it overstepped presidential powers and the judge’s ruling was a victory for the rule of law. However, a Department of Justice spokesman said the court had “exceeded its authority” in the ruling and vowed the department would continue to follow Trump’s direction.

Haiti
The Trump administration has announced it will end the temporary protected status designation for Haiti by July 2019, potentially forcing tens of thousands of Haitian immigrants to leave the United States or live in the shadows.

The designation is an immigration status allowed by law for certain countries experiencing dire conditions, such as a natural disaster, epidemic or war. The status was applied to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake devastated the Caribbean nation. More than 58,000 Haitian recipients are currently living in the United States under the status, which allows them to live and work here legally.

Mosque bombing

At least 50 people were killed Tuesday in a suicide bomb attack at a mosque in northern Nigeria, according to police.

The attack happened in the town of Mubi as worshippers were gathering for the “fajr” dawn prayer. The bomber was about 17, police said. We are still getting details about the attack, including the number of wounded.

Charlie Rose 
Another day, another round of sexual allegations against powerful, famous men. Eight women have come forward in a Washington Post story to accuse longtime broadcaster Charlie Rose of sexual harassment, including accounts of groping, exposure and inappropriately intimate conversations. In response, CBS has suspended Rose, who is currently a co-host on “CBS This Morning,” a correspondent for “60 Minutes” and the star of the PBS interview program bearing his name.

Meanwhile, The New York Times has also suspended political reporter Glenn Thrush over allegations of sexual misconduct involving young female journalists.

Puerto Rico
It’s been about two months since Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, but problems there continue to fester and overlap. Whitefish Energy, the controversial Montana company awarded a contract to help restore power to the US territory, is stopping its work on the island’s broken electricity grid. The company says it is owed more than $83 million by the island’s power authority. In addition, a CNN investigation has found the number of deaths because of Maria may be significantly underreported. The official tally of storm-related deaths stands at 55, but a survey of more than 100 funeral homes revealed almost 500 deaths that were thought the be storm-related.

AT&T say ‘see you in court,’ Yellen to leave Fed board, and British government up Brexit offer.

Court battle

AT&T Inc.’s chief executive officer Randall Stephenson told antitrust officers that he would see them in court after the Justice Department sued to block its $85.4 billion bid for Time Warner Inc. While he said the telecoms behemoth is open to more negotiations to seal federal approval, selling CNN was not on the cards. He briefly addressed what he called “the elephant in the room” — President Donald Trump’s very public dislike of CNN — saying that they had witnessed an abrupt change in the application of antitrust law. While the Justice Department’s concerns about the deal are fairly mainstream, the hard-line resistance to the deal is unusual, say analysts.

Yellen out

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said that she will resign her position on the board of governors once her nominated successor  Jerome Powell takes over in February. Her exit leaves Trump with considerable power to re-shape the board of the U.S. central bank, which would leave four of the seven seats on the board vacant. National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn has previously said that Trump will select an appointee for Fed vice-chair before Yellen — who has presided over a largely broad-based recovery — leaves.

Brexodus

Barring an unexpected breakthrough at the leaders’ summit with European Union officials next month, it may already be too late to stop banks going ahead with plansto relocate staff to the euro area. While British Prime Minister Theresa May won the backing of cabinet colleagues to offer more money to move talks forward, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier made clear yesterday that without a solution to the thorny question of the Irish border, money alone may not break the deadlock.

Markets rise

Overnight, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index gained 0.9 percent while Japan’s Topix index closed 0.7 percent higher in a broad regional rally that saw China’s Tencent Holdings Ltd. overtake Facebook Inc.’s market value to become the world’s fifth-largest company. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 Index was 0.3 percent higher at 5:50 a.m. Eastern Time as markets remain undisturbed by German political woes. S&P 500 futures were 0.2 percent higher, the 10-year Treasury yield was at 2.354 percent and gold was slightly higher.

Lira low

Turkey’s central bank will push lenders to use a more-expensive liquidity window as it tightens policy, but that wasn’t enough to stop the lira tumbling to a fresh record low. The latest round of market turmoil has been driven by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s latest intervention on monetary policy, while tensions with the United States continue to simmer.
