Suddenly unsure on immigration, Trump trying to clear it up
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - It's been the driving issue of Donald Trump's campaign. Build a wall along the southern border. Make Mexico pay for it. And expel everyone living in the U.S. illegally with the help of a "deportation force." Ten weeks before the election, however, buffeted by conflicting advice from aides and advisers, Trump has seemed to be in full indecision mode. At a Fox News town hall tall taping last week, in the face of pressing questions, he proceeded to poll the audience at length on the fate of an estimated 11 million people. Trump is now planning a major speech Wednesday, during which he's expected to finally clarify his stance.

Clinton proposes plan to address mental health treatment
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Hillary Clinton rolled out a comprehensive plan to address millions of Americans coping with mental illness, pointing to the need to fully integrate mental health services into the nation's health care system. Clinton's campaign released a multi-pronged approach to mental health care on Monday, aimed at ensuring that Americans would no longer separate mental health from physical health in terms of access, care and quality of treatment. "We've got to break through and break down the stigma and shame. We've got to make clear that mental health is not a personal failing. Right now it's our country which is failing people with mental health issues," she said.


Republican Meg Whitman to campaign for Clinton
Republican donor and fundraiser Meg Whitman is hitting the campaign trail for Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Hewlett-Packard executive will meet with business leaders in Denver on Tuesday to talk about Clinton's plans for jobs and the economy. Whitman endorsed Clinton earlier this month over fellow Republican Donald Trump, saying she cannot support a candidate who has "exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division." The former eBay CEO ran unsuccessfully for California governor in 2010, spending $144 million of her own money while losing to Democrat Jerry Brown. Whitman was the national finance co-chair of Republican New Jersey candidate Gov. Chris Christie's presidential campaign before he dropped out and endorsed Trump.


Airport scare hard to avoid with cascade of false reports
LOS ANGELES (AP) - In the moments before reports of gunshots spread panic at Los Angeles International Airport, police with weapons drawn had confronted a masked man outside a terminal who was carrying a plastic sword and dressed like Zorro. Authorities have now determined there were no gunshots. The only people at the airport with guns Sunday night were officers, but false reports of an active shooter triggered a ripple of chaos that sent frantic travelers racing to the street and onto the tarmac. As police tried Monday to sort out the cause of the disruption, experts said the incident - the second of its kind at a major U.S.


Brazil's president proclaims innocence at impeachment trial
BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) - Brazil's suspended president proclaimed her innocence Monday, branding her vice president a "usurper" and warning senators that history would judge them harshly if they ousted a democratically elected leader on false charges. Dilma Rousseff's much anticipated speech to the lawmakers who will decide this week whether to permanently remove her from office was characterized by the same defiance she has shown throughout an impeachment process that has divided Latin America's most populous nation. "I know I will be judged, but my conscience is clear. I did not commit a crime," Rousseff told senators, who listened intently in contrast to the chamber's usual raucousness.


Actor Gene Wilder, star of Mel Brooks movies, dies at 83
Gene Wilder, the frizzy-haired actor who brought his deft comedic touch to such unforgettable roles as the neurotic accountant in "The Producers" and the mad scientist of "Young Frankenstein," has died. He was 83. Wilder's nephew said Monday that the actor and writer died late Sunday at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, from complications from Alzheimer's disease. No funeral arrangements have been announced. Jordan Walker-Pearlman said in a statement that Wilder was diagnosed with the disease three years ago, but kept the condition private so as not to disappoint fans. Wilder started his acting career on the stage, but millions knew him from his work in the movies, especially his collaborations with Mel Brooks on "The Producers," ''Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein." The last film - with Wilder playing a California-born descendant of the mad scientist, insisting that his name is pronounced "Frahn-ken-SHTEEN" - was co-written by Brooks and Wilder and earned the pair an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay.


Clinton aide Abedin dumps husband Weiner over new scandal
NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin is done playing the good wife to Anthony Weiner, announcing Monday she is leaving the serially sexting ex-congressman after he was accused of sending raunchy photos and messages to yet another woman. Abedin, who as vice chair of Clinton's campaign is destined for big things if the Democrat is elected president, stayed with Weiner after a sexting scandal led him to resign from Congress in 2011 and after a new outbreak of online misbehavior wrecked his bid for New York mayor in 2013. She didn't leave even when a recent documentary blew up tense moments in their marriage to big-screen proportions.


Longtime aide Huma Abedin like 'second daughter' to Clinton
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Often called Hillary Clinton's second daughter, Huma Abedin is a deeply trusted aide who is rarely far apart from the Democratic presidential nominee. She's also a confidante subjected to a similar level of attention and scrutiny as her longtime boss. Abedin announced Monday she was separating from her husband, Anthony Weiner, after another sexting incident involving the former New York congressman. Weiner, a Democrat, resigned his seat amid a 2011 media firestorm that erupted after he texted lewd photos of himself to several women. When he ran for mayor of New York City two years later, his campaign stumbled when it was revealed he was still sexting women who were not his wife.
