(Want to get this briefing by email? Here\u2019s the sign-up.) Good morning, We\u2019re covering the shake-up at the Department of Homeland Security, the Israeli elections on Tuesday and the N.C.A.A. women\u2019s basketball championship. Homeland security secretary resigns Kirstjen Nielsen stepped down on Sunday after a rocky tenure in which she supported President Trump\u2019s hard-line immigration policies even as he blamed her for the increased number of migrants illegally entering the U.S. (Read her resignation letter.) After assuming the post in late 2017, Ms. Nielsen led the department during the administration\u2019s \u201czero tolerance\u201d policy along the Mexican border, which initially resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their families. What\u2019s next: Mr. Trump named Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, as acting secretary. In announcing a recent spike in the number of illegal border crossings, Mr. McAleenan said last month, \u201cThis is clearly both a border security and a humanitarian crisis.\u201d Catch up: On Friday, Mr. Trump withdrew his nominee to run Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Ronald Vitiello, saying he wanted the agency to go in a \u201ctougher\u201d direction. West Bank\u2019s future is now on Israeli ballot Fighting for survival before parliamentary elections, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unexpectedly promised over the weekend to begin extending sovereignty over the West Bank if he is re-elected. The West Bank is home to 2.6 million Palestinians, who view the area as the possible site of a future Palestinian state. Mr. Netanyahu\u2019s major rival, the former army chief Benny Gantz, and analysts dismissed the plan as a last-ditch effort to rally Mr. Netanyahu\u2019s right-wing base. Explainer: Mr. Netanyahu is one of Israel\u2019s longest-serving heads of state, but he is facing his strongest challenge in years from Mr. Gantz and the leaders of a centrist alliance. Here\u2019s a guide to Tuesday\u2019s voting. Miracle drugs do harm in the developing world Antibiotics, which have been credited with saving tens of millions of lives, have never been more accessible to the poor, thanks largely to the mass production of generics in China and India. Across much of the developing world, a few dollars will buy drugs like amoxicillin, which treats a broad range of infections. But the increasingly available drugs are losing their ability to kill the germs they were designed to cure. Poverty is a huge and largely unappreciated driver of antibiotic resistance, which is often viewed as a problem in rich countries. \u201cWe are quickly running out of treatment options,\u201d a researcher in Kenya said. \u201cIf we don\u2019t get a handle on the problem, I fear for the future.\u201d Another angle: A fungus called Candida auris preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe. It adds a frightening new dimension to the threat posed by the overuse of antibiotics. The trickle-down economics of trash picking Jake Orta lives three blocks from Mark Zuckerberg\u2019s $10 million home in San Francisco. A military veteran who now lives in government-subsidized housing, Mr. Orta is part of an underground economy, scavenging through others\u2019 trash. Mr. Orta sells what he retrieves around town and says his goal is to earn around $30 to $40 a day. Our reporter, who followed Mr. Orta through the alleys of San Francisco, offers a snapshot of the extremes of American capitalism. Quotable: \u201cYou\u2019ve got more and more tech people here and this city is moving faster and faster,\u201d said a spokesman for a contractor that collects San Francisco\u2019s garbage. \u201cThese people have short attention spans. Some discard items that ought to be repurposed.\u201d If you have 25 minutes, this is worth it Honduran women flee for their lives On a monthlong trip in Honduras, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and a photographer explored the rampant corruption and gang violence that is leading thousands of women to seek asylum in the U.S. Our Opinion section published their collaboration. The country is one of the world\u2019s deadliest for women, and the city above, Choloma, is one of the most dangerous. Domestic violence is common, and many women are killed by drug cartels and gangs, often in ways intended to spread terror. Here\u2019s what else is happening Battle in Libya: The U.S. military evacuated its small contingent of troops from the Libyan capital, Tripoli, as rival militias fought to stop an aspiring strongman from taking control of the city. Internet regulation: Britain has proposed sweeping government powers to fight the online spread of violent and extremist content, false information, and harmful material aimed at children. The plan announced today would be one of the most aggressive to rein in corrosive online content. Democrats and the death penalty: After California\u2019s governor issued a moratorium on executions, Democratic presidential candidates have embraced abolition. It represents a generational shift for the party but follows a decades-long trend in declining public support for capital punishment. Theater review: A revival of the 1943 musical \u201cOklahoma!\u201d opened at the Circle in the Square Theater in Manhattan on Sunday. Our critic calls it \u201cthe coolest new show on Broadway.\u201d What we\u2019re reading: This first-person piece in The Cut. John Schwartz, a climate reporter, recommends it. \u201cLizzie O\u2019Leary, one of my journalism heroes, recently resurfaced this 2017 essay about the sexual harassment she\u2019s experienced,\u201d he says. \u201cI\u2019m thinking maybe I should read it at least once a year, and maybe you should, too.\u201d Now, a break from the news Cook: This easy pie uses crumbled gingerbread-like speculoos cookies in its crust, and a cookie butter spread on top. Listen: Khalid broke out in 2017 with \u201cAmerican Teen.\u201d On his second full album, he suspends his demons in melodies and rhythms that take cues from R&B\u2019s past.

Smarter Living: Smartphones tend to occupy hours, but there are ways to give your fingers a break, such as setting up text abbreviations to eliminate repetitive typing. Voice assistants have also become more reliable. Set your alarm by saying, \u201cWake me at 7:30 a.m.\u201d or say, \u201cDo not disturb\u201d as you enter a movie theater or a meeting. We also have advice about how to deal with jerks, without being one. And now for the Back Story on \u2026 The place for diplomacy Latin American ministers are descending today on Quito, Ecuador\u2019s capital, to discuss Venezuela\u2019s migration crisis. The choice of location raises a question: When problems erupt in the region, is there a dominant city where they\u2019re hammered out? Not exactly. The city with the largest population is Mexico City. The regional finance capital is Panama City. Bras\u00edlia is the capital of Brazil, which has the continent\u2019s biggest economy. Latin America\u2019s exiles \u2014 from Cubans to the Venezuelans themselves \u2014 head north to Miami, where Spanish is often more common than English. A peace agreement with Colombia\u2019s rebels was hammered out in Havana, which has longstanding ties to both the rebels and the Colombian government. While other parts of the world have centers of gravity \u2014 think of Beijing, Brussels and Washington \u2014 Latin America is still searching for its own. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5APc0z49wg.
