This week, our continuing coverage of the immigration crisis. We talk first with Roxana Norouzi, deputy director of OneAmerica, the nonprofit started by Rep. Pramila Jayapal that's become the largest immigrant rights organization in Washington. Then, Erin Albanese and Tahmina Watson, two principle figures with Lawyer Moms for America, about their campaign to deliver an open letter to every senator and member of Congress calling for an end to Trump's policies on immigrant asylum-seekers and their children. And a conversation with Indivisible Austin president Lisa Benjamin Goodgame about what advocacy groups are doing on behalf of immigrants at and around the Texas border.
