Immigrant boys held in a former Wal-Mart, that Trump-Kim video, and the politics and language of soccer

Nearly 1,500 boys between the ages of 10 and 17 are being held in a detention center in a former Wal-Mart in Brownsville, Texas, after they crossed the border without documentation. We talk with a reporter who went inside. Plus, the specially produced video that President Donald Trump showed Kim Jong-un on an iPad in Singapore prompts a new look at US government propaganda.
