This American Life: The Out Crowd

For over a year we've been trying to get the American public to pay attention to the ‘Remain In Mexico' policy that forces immigrants to wait on the other side of the U.S. border while their asylum claims are being processed. Just as brutal towards families as the ‘Zero Tolerance' policy that forcibly separated children from their parents, it hasn't quite captured the national attention in the same way that earlier policy did. Why is that? This American Life's ‘The Out Crowd' addresses this question by speaking to people on both sides of the policy, and offers listeners a profound and unforgettable listening experience.
