Episode details

Gaby Del Valle and Felipe De La Hoz of Border/Lines join us to discuss the latest news on the immigration front.

Felipe and Gaby explain what Title 42 is, why it’s not so much gone as it is replaced and the moves the Biden administration have made recently to respond to processing challenges for asylum seekers at the border.
