The Takeaway

Tent City... For Migrant Children

Increased visibility of family separation at the border has been leading some politicians and conservative religious leaders to denounce Trump’s immigration policies – people and groups who have typically supported the president. We spoke with the mayor of Morristown, Tennessee – a small, Republican town – who says it’s time to bring compassion to the issue. Next, we take a look at the immigration legislation in the House this week; a discussion about how the Guatemala government is trying to capitalize on the volcano-induced chaos to pass unpopular legislation; and a conversation about our culture of business and being overworked.
