January 23, 2018: Hour 1Play
In hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 23, 2018 full broadcast, the federal government is open Tuesday, but negotiations on an immigration overhaul still loom. We take a look at the deal struck Monday, and what's ahead, with NPR's Kelsey Snell. Also, a trial begins in March in Wichita, Kansas, for three men accused of plotting to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, where Somali refugees live and maintain a mosque. Jessica Pressler has written about the story for New York Magazine, and tells us more about the men's alleged motivations and the role an undercover FBI agent played in stopping the plot. And we get an update from Michigan, where there could be a sentence as soon as Wednesday for Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor who has admitted to using his position to sexually abuse underage girls.
