2 Suspects Held in Quebec Mosque Attack:
Two suspects have been detained by police following a mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque that killed six people and wounded another eight. Witnesses at the mosque said two gunmen wearing black ski masks walked into the mosque and started shooting worshippers around 7:55 p.m. In a statement on Sunday night, Prime Minister Justin Trudeaucalled the massacre at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec “a terrorist attack on Muslims.” Police have said the victims were between the ages of 35 and 70. There were 39 others in the building at the time of the shooting who escaped unharmed. The investigation will be led by Quebec’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team. Officials would not yet comment on the identity of the attackers and have said it is “much too early” to determine their motives or methods. Police did say on Sunday evening that authorities do not believe any suspects remain at large.
Trump Signs Executive Order to Slash Regulations:
President Donald Trump
signed an executive order on Monday that will aim to slash federal regulations. According to reports, the order requires that two regulations be eliminated for every one that is created or added, with exceptions for matters of national security. Trump has signed executive orders nearly every day since he took office on January 20, and has received pushback from Democrats and even some Republicans on Capitol Hill over the implementation and planning for the order he signed on Friday which temporarily suspends the refugee program and bans travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Travelers Stranded and Protests Swell Over Trump Order:
Travelers were stranded around the world, protests escalated in the United States and anxiety rose within President Trump’s party on Sunday as his order closing the nation to refugees and people from certain predominantly Muslim countries provoked a crisis just days into his administration. The White House pulledback on part of Mr. Trump’s temporary ban on visitors from seven countries by saying that it would not apply to those with green cards granting them permanent residence in the United States. By the end of the day, the Department of Homeland Security formally issued an order declaring legal residents exempt from the order. But the recalibration did little to reassure critics at home or abroad who saw the president’s order as a retreat from traditional American values. European leaders denounced the order, and some Republican lawmakers called on Mr. Trump to back down. As of Sunday evening, officials said no one was being held at American airports, although lawyers said they believed that dozens were still being detained.
