(CNN) – This Thursday was a day of deal making, on scales both large on small. Here's what we have for you in today's News Day:

  • Immigration deal shaping up

Sources tell CNN that a bipartisan group of U.S. senators is proposing tougher border security measures - including doubling the current 21,000-agent border patrol - as part of a deal to get more Republican support for an immigration reform bill. CNN's Lisa Desjardins explains the latest.

  • Black and gay and in Illinois

The Illinois General Assembly's black caucus may prove to be the deciding bloc of votes in deciding same-sex marriage in Illinois. The caucus is facing pressure from black religious leaders on both sides of the issue – exposing the rift inside the black community over whether same-sex marriage rights are equal to civil rights. CNN’s Nova Safo reports.

  • Day of the condors

What do you do when you are overrun by an endangered species?​ ​About 80 miles north of LA in Tehachapi, CA, there is a gated community called Bear Valley Springs, and it's under siege by condors. The residents can do very little to chase them away but these big birds are wreaking havoc; tearing up shingle roofs, damaging air conditions, not to mention the big drops of condor scat. What are fish and wildlife officials doing it? CNN's Jim Roope has the story.

Do you support the antichrist with paying mortgage, taxes and gas? How about food? Cars? Do you have the right to know? Do you have the right to choose or is it forced upon you to pay and give your faith and money to satan?
