Some Immigrants Seeking Legal Residency Through Marriage Targeted for Detention, Lawsuit Alleges

We take a look at an immigration lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts. It alleges the administration targeted certain undocumented immigrants seeking legal residency through their marriage to U.S. citizens; we go to Georgia where a fight is playing out over a plan to close polling stations in one small county in the state; we hear from a parent about the concerns she has for her daughter’s safety as she heads back to school in Miami Dade County; the WNBA playoffs tip off with a huge game tonight between the Minnesota Lynx and the Los Angeles Sparks — the teams that played in the finals the last two years. We take a look at all the issues around women’s basketball as the playoffs get underway; and Prisoners in at least 17 states are going on strike today.  Organizers are calling for improved conditions for prisoners across the nation, among other demands.
