Soledad O’Brien checks in with freshman Congress members Rep. Jim Banks (R-IL) and Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) to discuss their priorities for the remainder of the year, concerns about North Korea, and what they think Congress will be able to accomplish. Then, we’re joined by Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-NV) a formerly undocumented immigrant who was brought into the U.S. at age 8 by his Mexican parents and is calling on Congress to pass the DREAM Act – a controversial piece of legislation that would allow a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants who were brought to America as children. And, after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Steve Ellis from the nonpartisan budget watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense, discusses the costs of the recent damage and possible solutions for future mitigation.
