September 14, 2017: Hour 2
In hour two of Here & Now's Sept. 14, 2017 full broadcast, we discuss the latest in politics with NPR's Domenico Montanaro, including President Trump's trip to Florida to visit with Irma victims, and Democrats' push for a DACA deal. Also, the stage production of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" — based on the book by Mark Haddon — premiered in 2013 and has, since then, featured an actor without autism in the lead role. That changes on Sept. 17. And hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled violence in their home country Myanmar and are now seeking shelter in neighboring Bangladesh. We check in with BBC correspondent Justin Rowlatt, who has been tracking what's happening.
September 14, 2017: Hour 1
In hour one of Here & Now's Sept. 14, 2017 full broadcast, long-term care facilities across Florida are being evaluated as police investigate the deaths of eight elderly people who died in a nursing home after Hurricane Irma. Associated Press reporter Terry Spencer joins us with the latest. Also, historians Brian Balogh and Nathan Connolly explain how presidents have often made controversial moves while public attention is focused elsewhere. And WHYY's Laura Benshoff reports undocumented immigrants are concerned that, due to the Trump administration's immigration policies, they may face arrest or wind up deported — despite being spouses of U.S. citizens.
