Your Call's Media Roundtable: The real costs of the US-Mexico border wall

Jan 18, 2018

  

On the next media roundtable, we’ll discuss two separate investigations on the US-Mexico border by USA Today and ProPublica.

Last summer, journalists from USA Today flew, drove and explored every foot of the nearly 2,000-mile border to document what exists now and how that would be impacted by a wall. The Propublica series exposes the federal government's use of eminent domain to seize land for a fence along the US-Mexico border.

Guests:

Dennis Wagner, senior reporter for The Arizona Republic and the USA Today Network

Julián Aguilar, reporter with the Texas Tribune covering politics and border affairs from the Texas-Mexico border
