The Trump administration’s policy of separating children from their parents as they crossed the U.S.-Mexico border captured national attention and sparked protests across the country.

Combined with the recent Supreme Court decision to uphold Trump’s travel ban, this development has brought immigration policy back to the forefront of public debate. WBUR immigration reporter Shannon Dooling will moderate a discussion with Mark Hetfield, executive director of the Hebrew Immigration Aid Society,  about the current state of immigration policy and what the government could be doing to reform it.
