Your Friday Evening Briefing
By REMY TUMIN AND MARCUS PAYADUE
Good evening. Here's the latest.

1. The fate of Dreamers will be decided by the Supreme Court.
After a long delay, the justices agreed to decide whether the Trump administration may shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which shields young immigrants from deportation.
The court will hear arguments in the case next term, with a decision expected in the middle of the presidential campaign. Above, protesters in 2016.
We're still breaking down the implications of the court's decision on Thursday to not include a citizenship question on the census (at least for now). But one thing is for sure: The political climate has made immigrant communities wary of opening their doors to census workers.

2. After a bruising debate, Joe Biden came back swinging.
The day after Senator Kamala Harris laced into his history on civil rights, the former vice president provided a lengthy defense of his record and insisted, "I never, never, never ever opposed voluntary busing," a central point of Ms. Harris's criticism.
Health care proved to be a divisive question on both debate nights, underscoring how an issue that united the party in 2018 has the potential to fracture it in 2020. Here's what else we learned from the first Democratic debates.
Many Americans experienced Marianne Williamson, above, for the first time. But she's been delivering a variation of the same message since the late 1980s.

3. "Don't meddle in the election, President."
President Trump told President Vladimir Putin of Russia at the G20 summit not to interfere in American elections in his own distinctive way: with a slight grin on his face, and an almost-joking tone.
The comments came only after a reporter asked if Mr. Trump would tell Russia not to meddle in American elections.
Next on the president's agenda in Osaka, Japan: A meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince. He'll also meet with the presidents of China and Turkey.

4. Oregon Republicans fled the state. The Democratic governor sent the police to retrieve them. The militia vowed to defend them. And now, they're coming out of hiding.
With the state legislative session set to end Sunday at midnight, Republicans are preparing to return to work at the State Capitol on Saturday after the caucus vanished for days to prevent a vote on a climate change bill.
"Our mission of walking out of this building was to kill cap-and-trade," the Senate Republican leader said Friday. "And that's what we did."
But it was unclear if the bill was entirely dead. The governor acknowledged that the legislation would not pass by Sunday, but added that it could "certainly" come up in a special session.

5. A white supremacist who killed a woman when he drove into a crowd of demonstrators in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017 was sentenced Friday to life in prison.
"This was calculated, it was cold blooded, it was motivated by this deep-seated racial animus," said Thomas T. Cullen, the United States attorney for the Western District of Virginia, after the sentence was handed down. He said the case set a precedent for future instances of domestic terrorism.
Lawyers for James Fields Jr., 22, had pleaded for mercy, citing his difficult childhood and mental health problems. But prosecutors argued that his beliefs motivated him to attend the "Unite the Right" white supremacist rally, where he attacked counterprotesters, murdered Heather Heyer and injured others.

6. Would you pay $30 a month to check your email?
One of Silicon Valley's buzziest start-ups, Superhuman, is betting its app's shiny features are worth a premium price. Our columnist tested the invitation-only service that promises "the fastest email experience ever made." The hype is "mostly justified," he writes, if you can shell out the cash.
In other gadget news, we have a comprehensive guide to using your smartphone while traveling in a foreign country. There's a cheap way, which involves a lot of work, or an easier method that will most likely cost you dearly.

7. U.S. for the win!
The U.S. won the most anticipated match of the World Cup, ousting host France, 2-1, and extending its dominant run. Megan Rapinoe, above, scored twice. The team moves on to the semifinals and will play England on Tuesday at 2 p.m. Eastern.
The victory prevented an all-European set of semifinals: Italy will face the Netherlands and Germany will play Sweden in the final two quarterfinals on Saturday.

8. Fewer than two decades ago, L.G.B.T. youth had limited mainstream labels to understand their identities. Today, the terminology is far more extensive.
We asked readers to tell us who they were. More than 5,000 people responded and used a total of 116 different words and phrases to describe their sexual and gender identities and relationships.
This weekend, four million people are set to celebrate WorldPride in New York. The celebration is expected to be one of the largest L.G.B.T.Q. gatherings in the world. We've rounded up the biggest events, and myriad ways to celebrate.

Bad Bunny, left, and J Balvin teamed up for Left, Christopher Gregory for The New York Times; Right, Julien Mignot for The New York Times
9. Two of the biggest Spanish-speaking global pop superstars have joined forces.
Bad Bunny, above left, and J Balvin, above right, teamed up for "Oasis," an eight-song collaborative album that was released as a surprise overnight. "It's just the beginning of a new global Spanish wave," Balvin told our music critic. "I think we're really making a beautiful statement."
Have you seen any good movies lately? Our critics have. They rounded up the best films of 2019 (so far).

10. And finally, the balm of slime.
The internet has become synonymous with stress itself. Is slime, that substance between liquid and solid, an antidote? Soft and fluffy, milky and glossy, smooth and buttery, or thick and crunchy, it just might be, writes Amanda Hess, our critic at large.
First popularized by Instagram users in Thailand and Indonesia, slime content has invaded the internet and oozed into the mainstream, becoming a lucrative business for people like Chloe Park, above. Slime is also blooming into a symbol of modern childhood — playful, tactile, and, as two middle schoolers put it, satisfying.
Have a pliable weekend.
