Guest: Julie L. Heckman, Executive Director of the American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) It’s that time of year again when communities light the sky with patriotic displays and families try not to set their shrubs on fire with store bought displays.

America's Stealth War on the Mexico Border

22 MINS

Guest: John Carlos Frey, Investigative Journalist and Filmmaker, Author of “Sand and Blood: America’s Stealth War on the Mexico Border” Some –but not all -of the 350migrant children held for weeks in squalid conditions in a Border Patrol facility in Texas have reportedly been moved to a safer location. Customs and Border Patrol officials say they are not equipped to handle the deluge of migrants arriving at the southern border –more than half a million people since October. The Department of Health and Human Services says next week it will run out of money to care for unaccompanied migrant children and has requested nearly $3 billion in emergency funds from Congress. But some Democrats are reluctant to approve the funding because they oppose the Trump Administration’s underlying immigration policies.
