This week’s marks the two anniversary of DACA, the program that defers deporting undocumented immigrants who arrived as children. Hundreds of thousands have yet to apply for the benefit. How can DACA reach them, especially those in rural areas? Analysts also comment on the role immigration played in the recent primary races of leading Republicans Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and the take-away for Republicans. Also, this edition discusses why some detainees at the immigration detention center in Washington State started a new hunger strike.
