Donald Trump and his family continue to profit from using the president’s property for non-political events.

The State Department shelled out more than $15,000 on 19 rooms at the new Trump hotel in Vancouver, where the family held a grand opening of the tower in late February, the Washington Post reports.

The Post, under a Freedom of Information Act request, obtained a heavily redacted invoice from the U.S. Consulate General in Vancouver.

The State Department, which provides security and logistical assistance,  has declined to comment.

Government officials have complained that Trump is using tax dollars for protection at the president at one of his private companies.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to resurrect the anti-drug program D.A.R.E, despite evidence that it’s ineffective.

While speaking at the D.A.R.E training conference in North Texas on Tuesday, Sessions defended the program as an effective way to prevent drug use among young adults, the New York Daily reports

“D.A.R.E. is, I think, as I indicated, the best remembered anti-drug program today,” Sessions said. “In recent years, people have not paid much attention to that message, but they are ready to hear it again.”

D.A.R.E. , which was founded in Los Angeles in 1983 and later criticized for its alleged failure to prevent young people from using drugs.

“D.A.R.E. does not work to reduce substance use. The program’s content, teaching methods, and use of uniformed police officers rather than teachers might each explain its weak evaluations,” the National Criminal Justice Reference Service said in a 1998 report to Congress.

Sessions countered that the program has provided effective results in schools nationwide. s

“We know it worked before and we can make it work again,” the AG said.

A federal program that protects young immigrants from deportation is likely illegal, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Hispanic lawmakers on Wednesday.

Kelly met behind closed doors with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to address former President Obama’s Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrival Program, or DACA, which protected hundreds of thousands of young people who entered the U.S. as children, the Associated Press reports. 

A group of attorneys is urging the president to phase out the program.

When Trump was running for president, he pledged to “immediately end” the DACA program. But his position has softened since he became president, saying his administration won’t target people protected by DACA.
