Hosted by

Nine young people brought to the US illegally as children voluntarily crossed the Mexican border. When they asked re-entry to the country where they've been raised if not born, they were placed in detention. We update the actions — and the risks — taken by so-called "Dreamers" who've become political activists. Also, investigation of how sexual assault cases are handled by USC and new details on how the LA Sheriff's department hid a federal informant from the FBI.
