Cold Wars: Battle for Arctic oil

Nearly two dozen ships on the move to the icy waters of the Arctic. Shell Oil is one step closer to discovering whether there is a bonanza of oil offshore of Alaska's north slope.

The prize, if it's there, a virtual gusher of oil that could spark a race between oil companies across the globe to drill in the Arctic.

Potentially a windfall, but this is an incredibly harsh place – it also happens to be home of a huge amount of wildlife and native Eskimo tribes that rely on those natural resources to survive.

Honor student faces deportation: How does it add up with Pres. Obama's no-deportation policy?

Two sisters in Miami are facing possible deportation tonight after the Department of Homeland Security wants their case thrown out of court.
Daniela and Dayana Pelaez came to the United States as toddlers and have been living in America ever since.

Daniela became the face of the Dream Act  in March when the high school valedictorian was almost deported back to her native Columbia. Florida Senator Marco Rubio intervened on her behalf, and President Barack Obama announced he wouldn't deport high school graduates who are in the country illegally.

Both Daniela and her sister earned a two-year reprieve from deportation but  the Department of Homeland Security now wants their appeal to stay in the country thrown out.

Daniela Pelaez, her attorney Nera Shefer and Fmr. President, American Immigration Lawyers Association David Leopold are OutFront.
