Connections: Discussing the conditions faced by migrants at the U.S.-Mexican border

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

What are conditions like for people who have migrated to the U.S.-Mexican border? That’s the question a group of local community members had as they traveled down to meet migrants, DREAMers, and deported veterans. They join us to share what they observed, and we discuss the broader issues related to the situation at the border.

In studio:

  • Rev. Ray Schellinger, American Baptist Churches Global Consultant for Immigrants and Refugees
  • Hannah Vickner Hough, immigration program director at the Legal Aid Society
  • Kirt Schutt, retired senior probation officer with the Monroe County Office of Probation/Community Corrections
