The Immigration Crisis and the Impact on Louisiana () It has been reported that more than one thousand immigrant children are living in Louisiana but authorities don’t know where.

What’s happening on the border and how is it affecting Louisiana? State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson traveled with the governor and will share what he witnessed, plus Shauna Sanford talks with State Representative Valerie Hodges and Loyola Law Professor Isabel Medina. SHARE
