Utah's religious and political leaders respond to the Trump administration's initial policy of separating families at the borders. Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes owns land close to the boundaries of the proposed inland port, which appears to disqualify him from the board he appointed himself to.

President Trump has signed an executive order allowing families to be detained together under his “zero tolerance” immigration policy. This comes amid a furor over the separation of children from their parents at the border. In the meantime, Congress continues to search for a fix to the immigration system. We’ll talk about the crisis at the border today on Access Utah. Our guests will include Pastor Steve Klemz of the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Salt Lake City; Erika George, Samuel D. Thurman Professor of Law in the S.J.
