How is the coronavirus affecting immigration and security along the U.S. border with Mexico? In this episode, join host Glynn Cosker for a conversation with Sylvia Longmire, an expert in border security, immigration and Mexico's drug wars. Learn how COVID-19 has suspended immigration hearings forcing asylum seekers to stay in crowded tent camps along the border for longer periods of time as they wait for courts to reopen. Also learn about the effects on DHS's relatively new migration protocols program (MPP) that changes the way CBP processes asylum requests from migrants.
