This is an extended episode in which, Rep. Ben McAdams visits the U.S. southern border with colleagues from the Problem Solver’s Caucus. He interviews Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, a Republican from Ohio, Rep. Tom Reed, R-New York, and Rep. Abigail Spanberger, R-Virginia, about what they saw during their visit and how they might find solutions to the growing crisis. The problem, McAdams says, is much more complicated and nuanced that the public debate, which makes finding solutions more difficult. For Gonzalez, some moments took him back to his childhood. One weeping woman, in particular, made him think of the many relatives who spent time at his home as they immigrated from Cuba to the U.S.“That was incredibly powerful for me,” Gonzalez said. “I couldn’t help but see members of my own family when I looked in her eyes and saw the tears running down her face.”This is a longer version of Episode 24, in which featured only Gonzalez.
