Separated: Inside An American Tragedy
On this edition of Your Call, we’re rebroadcasting our conversation with NBC/MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff about his new book, Separated: Inside an American Tragedy. In 2018, Soboroff exposed the living conditions of 1,500 children who were being held at Casa Padre, a former Walmart, in South Texas.
Amnesty International estimates that between 2017 and 2018, approximately 8,000 families were separated along the border. Two years later, it’s still happening. Physicians for Human Rights call the Trump administration's family separation policy a systematic campaign of torture. What questions do you have and what’s at stake in the presidential election?
