"We're gonna tell you about Trump's new immigration plan but first, here's a sad story that relates." Are there any news sources that aren't trying to push an agenda? Tell me the facts and let me feel how I want.

I don't like Trump, but I think he has taken a smart strategy on this issue. Threatening Mexico with tariffs was a good idea to stem the influx. Sad what is going on in Central American countries with gangs and threats of violence. Sounds like there are some deep rooted problems in these countries that should be addressed. Not sure what America can do, but offering unlimited asylum for these folks won't solve their problems at home.

The interviewer just barely hides her viewpoints. She is college radio calibre talent, at best. And her smug, monotone delivery is hard to listen to. NYT - do better pls!
