With a name inspired by the First Amendment, 1A explores important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and what connects us across the fissures that divide the country. The program also delves into pop culture, sports, and humor. 1A's goal is to act as a national mirror-taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be.
One of President Trump’s lasting legacies will be his strict, even cruel immigration policies, including the practice of family separation and child detention. President Biden promised on the campaign trail that he would undo these policies including DACA and has already taken some measures aimed at easing these harsh measures.

But first, we’ll hear about the release of the families that had been held at the Berks County Detention Center when Marty talks with WHYY’s LAURA BENSHOFF.
