We're diving beneath the headlines of one of the biggest stories of the week: the treatment of migrants who crossed the U.S.'s southern border and were reportedly lured onto a flight, paid for by Florida's governor, in Texas and eventually left on Martha's Vineyard.

We check in with WBUR reporter Simón Rios, who is covering the story from the Vineyard. After, we hear from Jeff Thielman, president and CEO of the International Institute of New England, which helps immigrants resettle and seek asylum once they've come to the U.S. Plus, we hear from two South American immigrants who came to Massachusetts this summer after crossing the U.S. Southern border.

This segment aired on September 16, 2022.
