WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans unveiled a slimmed-down bill Tuesday to address the immigration crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border by sending in National Guard troops and speeding migrant youths back home.

The Commonwealth Games were rocked by a first doping case on Tuesday on a day when Australia stayed on course to sweep all six gold medals on offer in the relays on the final day of swimming at the Commonwealth Games. There were gold medals early on for Canada's Catharine Prendrel in the women's mountain-bikes and Anton Cooper of New Zealand in the men's equivalent. David Chapman in the men's 25m rapid fire pistol and Adam Vella in the trap brought two more shooting golds for Australia, while England took the men's team gold in gymnastics. The doping case involved Nigerian weightlifter Chika Amalaha who was provisionally suspended from the Games after testing positive in a drugs test taken after she won gold in the women's 53kg category, the Commonwealth Games Federation announced.
