The Immigration Crisis and the Impact on Louisiana, The Annual Feast of the Assumption

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. Governor Bobby Jindal traveled to the Texas-Mexico border this week as some state lawmakers charge the federal government with secretly transporting illegal aliens to various states. 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

Charlie Whinham travels to Bayou Goula for the story that began over 200 years ago when thousands of Italian immigrants made their way to Louisiana. SHARE
