Host Anthony Brooks talks to The Boston Globe's Matt Viser about Trump's announcement of Alexander Acosta to replace Andrew Puzder as his pick for Labor Secretary and the press conference that followed. Then we talk to Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes about the city's lawsuit against the Trump Administration because they say the government is seeking to "commandeer local officials to enforce the federal government's immigration policies." And we speak to Peter Sokolowski, editor at large of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, located in Springfield, Mass., about the attention the book has been getting lately in light of words like "immigrant" and "impugn." Finally, we talk to Megan Sullivan, author of a new children's book about a child dealing with her father's reentry after five years in prison.
