Soledad O’Brien takes Matter of Fact to Miami, FL this week. It is one of the nation’s most global cities and over half of the residents are foreign born, something Mayor Francis Saurez says is a “badge of honor.” He sits down with Soledad O’Brien for conversation about diversity and tackling his city’s most pressing issue: bridging the gap between the wealthy and those might be financially struggling. Then, Matter of Fact correspondent Jessica Gomez visits the Old Dixie Highway, which in some parts has been renamed the Barack Obama Highway.  It runs through several communities each with different perspectives on President Trump’s first year in office. And, Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), joins Soledad for a conversation on the need to be responsive to Puerto Ricans seeking refuge from Hurricane Maria, why he disagrees with Trump on DACA, and why he’ll continue to seek membership in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, even after they told him no.
