In hour two of Here & Now's May 24, 2017 full broadcast, we hear the latest from Rome, where President Trump is continuing his first international trip since taking office by meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Also, we take a look at New York City's proposed "Jails to Jobs" program, which would give jobs to every inmate leaving city jails after they serve a sentence of a year or less. We hear from a supporter and critic of the plan. And we get an update on the investigation into the murder of Richard Collins III, a Bowie State University student who was stabbed to death at a bus stop three days before he was to receive his degree.
