The Line: Detentions at the U.S. – Mexico Border

the line

June 22, 2018 – This week, President signed an executive order to end the process of separating children from families after they are detained crossing the U.S. border illegally, but problems still remain. As a border state, this is a very tangible issue for us here in New Mexico, especially as one of the detention centers in Texas is very close to our state’s border. Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists look at how that proximity impacts the way New Mexicans weigh the issue, and what effect the situation might have on midterm elections.

Line Panelists:
Dan Foley, former House minority whip
Justine Fox-Young, former state representative
Eric Griego, former state senator
Laura Sanchez-Rivét, attorney at Cuddy and McCarthy, LLP
