10 YEARS AGO

U.S. District Judge SUSAN BOLTON put most of Arizona’s toughest-in-the-nation immigration law on hold just hours before it was to take effect. (In September 2012, Bolton ruled that police could enforce the so-called “show me your papers” provision of the law.) 

ON THIS DATE

In 1929, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was born in Southampton, N.Y.

In 1945, the U.S. Senate ratified the United Nations Charter by a vote of 89-2.

In 1984, the Los Angeles Summer Olympics opened.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic presidential nomination at the party’s convention in Philadelphia, where she cast herself as a unifier for divided times as well as an experienced leader steeled for a volatile world while aggressively challenging Republican Donald Trump’s ability to lead.

In 2017, the Senate voted 51-49 to reject Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s last-ditch effort to dismantle President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul with a trimmed-down bill. John McCain, who was about to begin treatments for a brain tumor, joined two other GOP senators in voting against the repeal effort.
