Carlos Vecchio is the ambassador of Venezuela's opposition in Washington, and will be at Tuesday's state of the union as a guest of Sen. Marco Rubio. Vecchio tells host Marco Werman about his job drumming up support for Juan Guaidó, the US-recognized interim president of Venezuela. We also hear from Marco Villada, a former DACA recipient who grew up in California, but ended up stranded in Mexico while trying to clarify his immigration status. Plus, Marco speaks with Fawzia Koofi, a member of the Afghan parliament who is in Moscow on Tuesday for peace talks with the Taliban. Koofi was also the first female deputy speaker in the assembly.
