FROM THIS EPISODE

The President said it’s too early to place the blame, but the US is raising tough questions about Russia’s involvement in the Malaysian Boeing 777 shot down yesterday over Eastern Ukraine.

Also, we'll give an update on Israel’s invasion of Gaza, and should Central American children who’ve reached America’s borders be sent back to the “murder capital of the world?”

Honduran Child Migrants Are Deported to World’s Murder Capital 17 MIN, 21 SEC

President Obama has asked for $3.7 billion to secure America’s borders and speed up the cases of 57,000 Central American children, many of whom have come here on their own. There’s support in Congress for “sending the message” that they and others like them are not welcome unless they’ve gone through the process of legal immigration. Yesterday, Sonia Nazario had a different message for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
