Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) slammed the Trump administration’s practice of separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border Tuesday in an emotional speech during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing. “We will not do that.

    The course covers the history, procedures and constitutional grounds for removing presidents as well as presidential immunity. It also reviews all 19 impeachments in U.S. history. 

    The one-unit weekend class begins on Friday. It's offered to the public through the university's extended studies program. 

    The university says the course isn't state-funded and isn't required for graduation.
