The conservative Heritage Foundation will host a panel on immigration reform Thursday headlined by possible presidential contender and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

This is Perry's first stop following his indictment last week on charges of abuse of power. The Texas Republican will be in New Hampshire on Friday and Saturday for local and state GOP events.

Attorney General Eric Holder visited Ferguson, Mo., Wednesday in an effort to quell the violence in the St. Louis suburb. Holder met with the parents of shooting victim Michael Brown and with Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson. Police reported very few arrests overnight.
