Anti-abortion group warns it has more controversial videos

Washington (CNN) – An anti-abortion group that released two controversial undercover videos from a months-long investigation of abortion service providers has vowed to soon put out six more - perhaps releasing a third as early as this week.

The group, Live Action, claims that all of the videos will show varying degrees of an illegal act: abortion clinic workers admitting to being willing to kill babies who are born alive after botched abortions.

Santa Fe mayor urges allowing same-sex marriage in New Mexico

The mayor's action does not carry the force of law, though county clerks could honor his urging. Yet his action raises a controversial question: could he provoke New Mexico into becoming the 10th state in the nation to allow same-sex marriage?

Paul lays out steps to provide permanent legal status for illegal immigrants

Washington (CNN) - Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky on Tuesday waded deeper into an issue fraught with political opportunity and risks: further clarifying his ideas on immigration reform by laying out steps to eventually provide permanent legal status for the millions of illegal immigrants in the U.S.

"I think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants," Paul said.

Sen. Rand Paul appears on "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" Tuesday from 5-7 p.m. ET, only on CNN.
