Fight against Housing Discrimination Gets a New Lease on Life

Hosted by

In 1968, the Fair Housing Act ended overt racial discrimination, but its promise of also ending segregation has not been fulfilled, and there is still unequal access to schools, parks and upward mobility. We hear what President Obama proposes to do and what it could mean for local neighborhoods.

Also, why today's "A Greek-greement" may be a tough sell. On today's Talking Point,a tunnel with ventilation, lighting, oxygen tanks and a roof high enough for Mexico's most powerful drug kingpin to stand up in. We hear about Saturday's prison escape by Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán.
