This week, we get smart about the immigration crisis and the Trump administration's controversial policy of separating parents and children.
69: Why does "zero tolerance" look like this?
By now, you've probably seen them. Heart-wrenching images of parents and children separated and the southwest border, sent to jail or youth detention centers. The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" for illegal border crossings is just one of several seismic changes to immigration enforcement in recent weeks. Immigrants seeking asylum from gangs or domestic violence will no longer be admitted, reducing legal immigration as well. So how'd we get here? And what does Congress need to do to fix a policy that's drawn bipartisan outrage? Immigration attorney Kathleen Gasparian will come on to make us smart. But first, we'll talk about the other Trump administration scandal you missed this week.
