Out-cue: decade or so]
TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. The UAW says that workers voted 710 to 16 for the union.
VERBATIM: About 900 employees at the new plant near Warren, Ohio, are the first to decide on union representation at a battery plant. The vote is crucial to the future of the 372,000-member union. As batteries replace gas-powered engines, employees at GM engine and transmission factories will need places to work as their products are gradually phased out over the next decade or so.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that GOP lawmakers will consider impeachment next year if he does not step down. More on this from Congressional Correspondent Bernie Bennett.
McCarthy said at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday, “If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate, every order, every action and every failure will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry.”
McCarthy cited the Department of Homeland Security head’s statements to Congress that the border is under control, record border crossing numbers and his ending of the “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy instituted during the Trump administration as reasons for resignation.
McCarthy was nominated by House Republicans to serve as Speaker in the next Congress last week during a closed-door vote.

A San Antonio theatre is canceling all its drag shows
VERBATIM: The decision follows release of video shot by the Texas Family Project at a recent performance by a local group that showed a drag performer stroking a small girl’s hair on stage while the child gave him money. The performers wore scanty clothing, sang profane songs and brandished rainbow flags with the number 666 on them. The Starlighter theatre says there will be no more drag shows through the rest of the year. Some Texans want a law to ban children from such events. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
