Joining the march are the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, two unarmed black men who died in incidents with white police officers.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says that despite Democrats' objections to certain provisions, the Senate should give final approval to a $1.1 trillion, House-passed spending bill to fund the government until September.

The senate will work today and may vote to limit debate shortly after midnight tonight.
