Here And There with Dave Marash

Monitoring the fates of unaccompanied minor border-crossers, today we present the second of 2 encores…this one featuring investigative reporter Garance Burke of the Associated Press (AP)…on how, in absolute defiance of State and Federal law, hundreds of immigrant children are being denied access to public schools.  These are kids who have followed American law and are awaiting court dates to ask for asylum or temporary or permanent legal residence.  But while they wait, their futures are being crippled by school districts that refuse to accept them into classes.
