In hour two of Here & Now's Jan. 15, 2018 full broadcast, NPR's Scott Horsley joins us to discuss the continuing fallout from reports President Trump spoke in crude terms about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. Also, Erin Hamlin has been riding the luge since she was 12 years old. Now, almost 20 years later, the champion American athlete will be heading to the Olympics for her fourth, and likely final, time. And this week the House will hear arguments in favor of bringing back earmarks, which were banned in 2011 after an ongoing problem with corruption. We take a closer look at what a return might mean.
