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 the Trump administration’s lasting legacies will be the child separation policy at the border. The practice was widely criticized for being inhumane and immoral, and has left hundreds of kids unable to find their parents. We start the show today with ACLU lawyer LEE GELERNT, who is leading the lawsuit against the Trump administration on behalf of the families who had been separated. Then, we’ll talk about the continuing efforts of the Trump administration to heavily restrict immigration in the finals days of his presidency, and what a Biden administration’s immigration policies might look like when we speak with ProPublica’s DARA LIND. We’ll also hear from CATHLEEN CARON, who is executive director of Justice in Motion, a group that works to reunite families who have been separated at the border.
