More on Prime Minister Modi’s visit:

In 2005, Modi was denied a visa to enter the US, tied to riots in the Indian State of Gujarat in which he was the top elected official.

Modi has also been named in a civil lawsuit pegged to the 2002 riots in his state. WH says Modi has diplomatic immunity on this visit.

Off campus, Pres Obama drops by another DNC fundraising roundtable. Approx 25 supporters paying up to FEC max of $32,400 per person.
