Guest: Jodi Goodwin, Immigration Attorney, Harlingen, Texas While Congress and the President wrangle over funding for a wall, the Trump Administration is moving ahead with changes in how it treats people seeking asylum at the border.

The plan is to start doing the same thing at other ports of entry along the border.
