    Kushner's Got This

    Kushner's Got This

    This week on Redirect: Immigration Law & Perspectives, Matthew and I discuss the new asylum "agreement" with Honduras. Acting DHS secretary Chad Wolf was just in Honduras, shaking hands with President Juan Orlando Hernandez, the man who was recently implicated in a massive drug trafficking scheme. You can read about it here:

    Meanwhile, Jared Kushner, the man who has been tasked with brokering some kind of immigration "solution," thinks that low refugee numbers are no big deal given the scale of the global problem. Kushner's grandparents came here after surviving the holocaust, and our admissions process then was so restrictive they had to lie to get their visas.

    Happy Hell-o-days

    This week Matthew and I try to make sense of a dizzying array of crappy stories. How do we stay on top of the news when it is non-stop terrible? 

    Big thanks to Hamed Aleaziz (@Haleaziz) who has been reporting on big stories, including the asylum winner who is being blocked from entry into the U.S., the asylum seekers being deported to Guatemala, and the horrendous medical treatment provided in ICE facilities.

    Kids in Cafes

    Kids in Cafes

    This week on Redirect: Immigration Law & Perspectives, Matthew and I are joined by Bridget Cambria and Adriana Zambrano. We talk about what is supposed to happen when unaccompanied children are detained at the border. We also talk about what happened to Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez, a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant who died in Border Patrol custody. 
    Video of Carlos's death was recently published by ProPublica and it calls into question the narrative provided by Border Patrol. It also exposes the harsh and inhumane treatment endured not just by Carlos, but by many other children like him.
