This week on Matter of Fact, Soledad O’Brien takes a look at the new estimates that nearly 5,000 people died in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. Dr. Irwin Redlener, a national leader in disaster preparedness, joins Soledad to discuss why the hurricane’s aftermath was so deadly. Then, correspondent Diane Roberts travels to Alabama to meet with Tim Lanier, one of ten felons who are suing they state. They say the state’s law against felons voting is unconstitutional and a modern day poll tax. And, where does the modern white power movement come from? Soledad speaks with historian Kathleen Belew about the historical rise of the far-right and the connection to the Vietnam War.
