(Studio: Miguel Marquez) Senator Patty Murray†’s remarks on the immigration crisis noted. [MURRAY – says this is a refugee crisis on our southern border.] Live discussion held with U.N. Refugee Agency Lindsay Jenkins† and CNN correspondent Rosa Flores† about the U.N.’s opinion that undocumented people coming into the US should be treated as refugees, which allows them to seek asylum while immigrant status means deportation. [JENKINS – says it’s our job to make sure that those who are fleeing for their lives and freedoms are protected; says each child must tell her story to an official who can conduct a full analysis of her case.] [FLORES – says people moving north talk about the gangs and poverty in Central America and how kids are trying to reunite with their parents in the US.]
