Good morning! Back at the grind for this warm Monday morning.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is in Albany, with nothing public planned so far.

Mayor Bill de Blasio says he’s getting reports that a nationwide crackdown on immigrants facing deportation began on Saturday in New York City.

Authorities say power has been restored to all areas of Manhattan affected by a widespread power outage that left businesses without electricity and subway stations without power Saturday evening.

The power outage that left thousands of New Yorkers in the dark on Saturday has also cut Mayor De Blasio’s presidential campaign trip to Iowa short this weekend.

With de Blasio out of town and on the presidential campaign trail, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson — who is considering a run for mayor — provided minute by minute updates as the blackout continued.

Since the 2016 presidential election, the DSA’s membership has soared to more than 5,000 members in New York and growing, often using social media as an organizing tool.

The MTA is facing a transformation. A long-awaited report from a consultant wants to streamline the 51-year-old agency, saving hundreds of millions of dollars.

Currently, New York City is considering opening up four new jails in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and in the Bronx, and shuttering Rikers Island. That proposal is making its way through the land-use process.

A protest at West Capital Park in Albany called for an end to detention centers at the southern border. More than 20 local organizations participated in the “Lights for Liberty” protest and vigil.

Despite city lawmakers passing the FACT Act Thursday night, Troy Mayor Patrick Madden vetoed the measure Friday evening.

The U.S. Census is moving forward without a citizenship question — a development Gov. Andrew Cuomo said was good for the state.

When it comes to races, a head start usually helps. That’s exactly what Republican Chris Jacobs got in May when he became the first person to officially announce his candidacy in New York’s 27th Congressional District race.

More than 50 Democrats in the state Assembly on Thursday signed onto a letter to President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr urging the federal administration improve conditions at detention facilities holding migrant families near the southern border.

Thousands of runners from across the nation and around the world, invaded the streets of Utica Sunday morning for the city’s largest 15K race.

It’s not a big deal if your mail gets delayed a day or two, but how about two and a half months? That’s how long the post office didn’t deliver bills and much-needed donations meant for a homeless shelter in Buffalo.

Congressional rooms were filled with emotion on Capitol Hill as lawmakers held several hearings this week to address the reportedly poor conditions at the southern border detention centers.

It’s an effort to save the environment but it’s leaving home and business owners with a tough, and pretty costly, decision.

In national news:

In comments apparently directed at a group of freshman Democratic lawmakers, President Trump tweeted they should “go back” to the countries they are from (they are all citizens, three were born in the United States).

No modern president has sought to fan the flames of racial division as President Trump has, The New York Times writes.

The tweet also came as Democrats were becoming increasingly divided between establishment leaders and newly elected lawmakers, potentially uniting the party against the president.

A central question for Democrats in the presidential nominating contest: how far left is too far.

The White House this week will host a religious freedom conference.

Vice President Mike Pence in The Washington Post urges Congress to approve the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is consolidating his power and building his own fiefdom within the West Wing.

It appears the largest cities in Louisiana have avoided flooding related to the slow-moving tropical storm Barry.

From the editorial pages:

The New York Post writes Mayor Bill de Blasio should be removed from the mayor’s office after he was AWOL during the blackout.

The Daily News says the proposed MTA reorganization should go even further than recommended by an outside consultant.

The Times Union writes Congress should review a report compiled on mass shootings, which makes the case for so-called “red flag” laws like the one New York lawmakers approved this year.

From the sports pages:

Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in an epic match to win the men’s tournament Wimbledon.

Simona Halep in an upset defeated Serena Williams at Wimbledon.

Yankees beat the Blue Jays, 4-2.
