July 9, 2018: Hour 1

As the rescue operation of young boys from a cave continues in Thailand, what are the physical and psychological impacts of being trapped underground for multiple weeks? We hear perspective from the author of "Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free," about the Chilean miners whose 69-day ordeal in 2010 gripped the world. Also, in the new documentary "The King," writer-director Eugene Jarecki takes Elvis Presley's 1963 Rolls-Royce on a ride across America. Along the way, Jarecki talks to commentators, musicians, actors and more about Presley's continued influence on America. And USA Today immigration reporter Alan Gomez joins us for an update on whether government officials are going to be able to meet a Tuesday deadline to reunite migrant children with their parents. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 9, 2018 full broadcast.
