Over 2,000 children who crossed the U.S. border illegally with their parents have now been separated from them. We’re looking at next steps and political fallout for the President over The White House’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. It’s 90 degrees plus, and besides Mother Nature turning up the temperature, Manhattan itself is an “Urban Heat Island.” Find out what that is, and what plans are underway to keep us all cool when it gets hot. We’re headed Upstate to Sharon Springs, New York, where children will have after school programing for the first time in a decade. A new documentary “Quest,” provides a vivid look at race and class in America, and delivers a testament to love, healing and hope. We have your preview.
