President Trump is expected to reveal his nominee to take over retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's Supreme Court seat Monday night. NPR's Ron Elving joins us to discuss what might be ahead. Also, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has indicated that the Port Isabel Detention Center in south Texas could be the site of migrant family reunifications, a facility that human rights attorney Sara E. Dill likens to a prison. And a soccer ball that survived the 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger has completed a long journey — including a trip to the International Space Station — back to the high school where it came from. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's July 9, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
