Devon and Varsha discuss corruption in congress, the press’ role in a free democracy and more immigration bullshit. They also cover a few horrific stories of abuse of children being held in ORR facilities after being forcibly separated from their parents.
Devon also sits down with Rewire.News reporter Tina Vasquez for a more in-depth look at the rampant abuse and deaths of those in ICE custody.
