#1739 - Southern Roadtrip (Part 2)

The Latino USA road trip continues. Producers Zakiya Gibbons and Jeanne Montalvo, who both grew up in the South, take host Maria Hinojosa on a road trip through the heart of the South to learn first-hand what it's like to be Latino and Southern today. We go to rural Alabama and learn what happened after the controversial law HB 56 was passed. We drive through Albertville, Alabama, rumored to have become a "ghost town" after the law went into effect and find out if this is true. We also get a slice of what life is like in a post-Trump South for Latinos.
