The Border

In this episode, Congressman Ben McAdams talks with another newly elected representative – Veronica Escobar, a Democrat who represents Texas’s 16th Congressional District, the heart of which is El Paso. Rep. Escobar talks about how the mythology surrounding immigration, including incorrect or misleading crime statistics shared by President Donald Trump in his State of the Union address last month, make immigration and border conversations more difficult. Congressman McAdams shares his own thoughts on the complexities of the emotionally-charged debate, as lawmakers attempt to fix an immigration system that is failing U.S. citizens and immigrants.
