Democratic presidential hopefuls look ahead to upcoming state primaries. The Department of Education investigates mishandling of foreign money at top U.S. universities. Customs and Border Protection says that officers inappropriately detained Iranian Americans at the U.S.-Canada border.

Correction Feb. 15, 2020

A previous headline on this story incorrectly said the Border Patrol admitted mistakes in detaining Iranian Americans. It was actually the head of Customs and Border Protection who made the announcement referring to CBP officers. The Border Patrol, which is a separate agency under CBP, was not involved in the detentions.
