TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

A trial challenging the Trump administration, and a question about citizenship begins, as a polarized nation awaits the results of the midterm elections. Tonight we’ll examine what’s at stake in the midterm elections, looking at not only federal dollars but potential powers. What fate lies ahead for the caravan of refugees from Central and South America, who are now almost one thousand miles from the U.S. border? New York Rep. Adriano Espaillat was an undocumented immigrant when he arrived in this country. Tonight he gives us his reaction. What issues do you most care about after the votes are counted? We’re looking at the issues Albany must tackle in the coming legislative cycle. Find out how one community on Long Island is trying to hold on to its past while staving off developers.
