Puerto Rico Signs Contract with Private Prison Company to Relocate Inmates to Arizona

We take a look at a plan underway in Puerto Rico to transfer some of the island’s prison population to a privately run prison in Arizona; a conversation with the co-vice chair of the Justice Department’s Religious Liberty Task force about why the Justice Department felt the need to address this issue now; the latest from Manafort Trial; a look at the record number of Muslim candidates in this primary season; and a conversation with two community leaders about how Washington, DC is preparing for the second Unite the Right Rally, this time held in their city.
