Media Roundtable: Gun violence drops in the Bay Area, migrant deaths & ICE raids

Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group
March For Our Lives rally in San Francisco, Calif., on Saturday, March 24, 2018.

On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we’ll discuss a recent report from The Guardian that found gun homicides nationwide have barely dropped, but in the Bay Area, a region scarred by inequality and gentrification, they’re down by 30 percent.

Later in the show, we'll get the latest on the reported ICE raids that are expected to begin this Sunday in 10 major cities, including San Francisco, and we'll talk about migrant deaths. In the last year, six children have died in custody.
