As Government Rushes to Reunify Separated Families, Questions Remain About Parents Already Deported

Today, is the deadline the U.S. government set for family reunification, after implementing the family separation policy of “zero tolerance.” We take a look at where the government is in terms of family reunification; a look at whether or not the “zero tolerance” policy has been a deterrent to people looking to cross; we hear from a congressman about what Latino leadership on the issue of family separation and immigration more broadly looks like in Washington today and what other Latino lawmakers are doing to respond to constituents; a look inside one processing facility in Brownsville; yesterday 11 House Republican members of the Freedom Caucus initiated articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein; since Parkland, 26 states have passed some of form of tighter gun control legislation; a look at how the stand your ground law on the books in Florida is raising a larger national debate following the killing last week of a man who shoved another individual to the ground; and we wrap up our series “Hysterical: Women and Rage” with a look at how pop culture has portrayed angry women over time and if Hollywood is getting any better at it.
