Texas Polygamist raid

    Did Texas overreach its legal authority when it raided a Polygamist community and removed the children? We’ll first get an update from NPR’s WADE GOODWYN who has been covering the story. Then we’ll debate the legal case with two attorneys. MARCI HAMILTON is a Philadelphia area attorney who says Texas had every right to intervene and remove the kids and JIM BRADSHAW a Salt Lake City defense attorney advising some of the families says Texas has violated due process when it separated the mothers from the kids with proper hearings.
