Joe Biden will become the latest President to pursue immigration reform when he takes office tomorrow. He's set to put forward a plan that would create an eight-year path to citizenship for millions of people. Biden's proposal would also impose a moratorium on deportations and extend protections for Dreamers.       Johns Hopkins University says the U.S. is on the cusp of hitting 400-thousand coronavirus deaths. That's by far the most in the world. That would be the latest grim milestone for the U.S. as it recently hit 24-million infections.       Today is President Trump's last full day in office and reports say he could issue a flurry of pardons and commutations on his way out. Trump has already pardoned a number of allies during his time in office. That includes people who were linked to the Russia investigation.        Dangerous winds in the Los Angeles area could lead to thousands having their power shut off. Southern California Edison is getting ready to cut off power to 280-thousand customers. Gusts could reach speeds of up to 90 miles-per-hour in the foothills and mountains of Los Angeles and Ventura counties by the end of the day.        Two Missouri lawmakers are asking the St. Louis Cardinals to erect a monument at the site of old slave pens near Busch Stadium. The land in downtown St. Louis was once home to pens where enslaved people were held in shackles before being auctioned off or sold. St. Louis-area state representatives Rasheen Aldridge and Trish Gunby made the request to the Cardinals as a way to acknowledge the horror and history of where Busch Stadium now stands.       An independent game developer finally has permission to use Tesla CEO Elon Musk's name and SpaceX's logo. The developer hoped to create a game about colonizing Mars and he promised to reach out to Musk every day for a year or until he got a response to his request. He finally got a reply last week as Musk tweeted, "You can steal our name/logos and we probably won't sue you."
