Families At The Border: A 1A Special

Jun 20, 2018

New Hampshire Public Radio will air a one-hour special from 1A titled "Families At The Border" Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at the southern border of the United States under the federal government's "zero tolerance" policy.

A Quinnipiac University poll found that while a third of voters oppose the policy - more than half of Republicans polled support the policy.

For all sides, this issue is more than just policy, it cuts to what America represents and what is wants to be. Who is this country for - and what might it look like in 50 years?

In this special program, 1A will look at the debate over the border, and the country.

Guests:

Rabbi Gerry Serotta, executive director, InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington.

Franco Ordoñez, White House Correspondent, McClatchy Washington Bureau.

Anna Galland, executive director, MoveOn Civic Action.

Dr. Lisa Fortuna, medical director of Medicine and Adolescent Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine.
