Border Crisis Comes to CA?

Hosted by

Immigrants from Central America are pouring over the U.S.-Mexico border at an unprecedented rate, while Congress is at a standstill on comprehensive immigration reform. Today President Obama said he’d had enough, and is taking executive action where he can. In the meantime, migrant families detained in Texas may be shipped to San Diego County for processing, easing pressure on inundated border authorities. We’ll talk about the “immigrant shuffle” and how LA schools are dealing with the influx of Central American children.

Also tonight: Dov Charney’s out at American Apparel… Or is he? How is L.A.’s storied Garment District reacting?
