Rep. Lewis: I never thought that I would see the day when the U.S Supreme Court would put a dagger in the heart of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Rep. John Lewis of Georgia talks with CNN's Wolf Blitzer about today's Supreme Court decision. A full transcript will be posted on CNN.com.

"It is awful.  It's a sad day.  I never thought that I would see the day when the United States Supreme Court would put a dagger in the heart of the Voting Rights Act of 1965....

I was there.  I was there.  He gave me one of the pens that he used to sign the Voting Rights Act.

These states was covered by the law.  Now, if we want to move to that point and cover other states, but even certain counties in New York, the places in Alaska are covered.

But if we want to move to that point and cover all 50 states, let's have that debate.

But the serious violation of the right of people to participate in the heart of the Deep South."

Pelosi to Bolduan: There will be an immigration bill; Snowden is not a hero

This morning on New Day, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN’s Kate Bolduan that the Senate and House will have an immigration bill and Republicans need to prioritize it if they want to be relevant with the Hispanic community in future elections. When asked about Edward Snowden, she said he is not a hero since he broke the law. She said the current administration has created extra protections for American liberties after the Bush administration by making information requests go through a FISA court with oversight by Congress.

On the immigration bill, Rep. Pelosi said, “Democrats and Republicans have been working together in the House of Representatives for a number of years on legislation that bears some similarity to what's going on in the Senate…. I think it's important for the House to have its own bill, but I think there will be a lot of public pressure if we don't to take up the Senate bill. I hope we could have a bill and go to conference and reconcile the differences between the two bills, but we will have a bill.”

On Snowden and privacy, Rep. Pelosi said, “I mean, the point being is that we have a balance between liberty and security, and this president has been doing that. So, this reaction by some that, oh, [Snowden’s] a hero because he revealed this or that - that's not a hero. He has broken the law. And I think we have to look into the fact that… there's so many people working in the intelligence community, patriotic Americans, who take their oath of office seriously to protect and defend the American people.”

New Day airs weekday mornings from 6-9am ET on CNN.

Sen. McCain on Snowden: Russia's actions are reminiscent of Cold War; makes America look weak

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) tells CNN’s Chris Cuomo on New Day that Edward Snowden shows a lack of American leadership and Russia and China’s reactions illuminate a time reminiscent of the Cold War. On immigration, Senator McCain said he sees a “path forward” with current bill that received preliminary vote.

“It's reminiscent of the days of the Cold War when you hear a Russian spokesman saying that [Snowden’s] not in Russia, when every shred of evidence indicates that he is,” Senator McCain said. “Look, we've got to start dealing with Vladimir Putin in a realistic fashion for what he is. He’s an old KGB colonel apparatchik that dreams of the days of the Russian empire, and he continues to stick his thumb in our eye in a broad variety of ways, most importantly to me, of course, and should be to the world, is their continued support of Bashar al Assad and the massacre taking place in Syria….”

CNN's Suzanne Malveaux Sheds Light on ALS

The series will air on CNN Newsroom July 23rd, 25th and 26th at 1pm.

CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux will focus on ALS with a one-time series reporting on three unique faces of ALS and how their families are coping. With the help of Dr. Sanjay Gupta this series will tap into the medical resources as well as the research of the disease.

ALS, (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), is a fatal fast moving disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that affects more than 30,000 people at any given time. A person who has ALS loses their ability to control their voluntary muscles and eventually cannot swallow, speak, breathe, or move. They become completely paralyzed and are dependent on machines to live-relying on a feeding tube, trache, breathing machine, motorized wheelchair, and communications equipment. ALS patients usually live 2 to 5 years after their diagnosis, although there are rare exceptions. There is currently no cure for the disease. FULL POST

Paula Deen's sons: Mom is not a racist; case is extortion, character assassination

Paula Deen’s sons Jamie and Bobby broke their silence on CNN’s New Day in an exclusive interview with co-host Chris Cuomo. The Deen brothers told Cuomo that they’ve never heard their mother speak the way she did in the deposition and the full truth will come out. Bobby claimed that his mother is not a racist and the case is extortion and character assassination.

The Deen brothers defend Paula Deen's reputation in light of the fallout from her deposition in a discrimination lawsuit that went public last week. Since then, Food Network cancelled her contract and Smithfield Products dropped her endorsement. Jamie and Bobby Deen operate a restaurant, The Lady and Sons in Savannah, Georgia, with their mom.
