Description

Increasing numbers of Haitian migrants have been traveling to the border town of Del Rio, Texas, recently, in the hope of entering the United States.

Border Patrol took action — in some cases, sending the migrants back to Haiti; in others, taking them into custody or releasing them as they await trial.

Why did so many thousands of Haitians come to the border in the first place? And what was behind the Biden administration’s reaction?

Guest: Michael D. Shear, a White House correspondent for The New York Times.

why even give airtime to the idea that anyone was whipped? you can see video of the whole incident from a different angle and it's obvious nobody was especially in that photo that went viral. Then 'the daily' podcast explicitly endorses the build back better 3.5trillion dollar bill?.... You're democrats
