Special Report: What If It Were Me? An On-The-Ground Look At Women At The Border

By Sally Hubbard, Investigative Journalist

April Wimberley is an attorney at Hogan Lovells, a pro-bono prisoners' advocate, and the star of our past episode #19. April recently traveled to Dilley, Texas to volunteer as a legal advocate for detained immigrant women. April recorded her reflections from each day -- from admiring the women's tremendous strength, to witnessing a mother's reunification with her two sons, to the stories of women fleeing both gang violence and domestic violence. Her account inspires us all to put ourselves in the shoes of women at the border and ask, "What if it were me?" Edited by Alicia Barrett. Music credits: Charlie Lewis - “Holdover” Robert Farmer - “I Wonder What the World is Doing Now” Robert Farmer - “We Will Not Be Shipwrecked on a Vain Reality”
