TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

June 27, 2018 at 5:30 am

In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court has upheld President Trump’s travel ban. So, what does this ruling mean for those from targeted Muslim-majority countries? Long Island Congressman Tom Suozzi gives us his firsthand account of life inside MercyFirst, a child immigrant facility, as the U.S.-Mexico border issue escalates with children in the crosshairs. Are monster storms becoming more frequent and more severe? PBS’ “NOVA” gives us the science behind the “Rise of Superstorms.” Two filmmakers used 30 years of their own footage to illustrate the history of protest and activism in America. Tonight, one of them is here with a preview of the documentary.

Aired on June 26, 2018.
