In The Thick


Mar 26, 2019

Everyone is talking about the border, but no one is really talking about the border: what it is like to live, work and experience the vibrant day-to-day life around it. We don’t hear about the particular culture, uniqueness or challenges of this locale that go beyond the wall and immigration. Join In The Thick for the live show with co-hosts, Maria Hinojosa and Julio Ricardo Varela and guests Beatrix Lestrange, dragtivist and community organizer and Derick Garcia, Local NBC 23 News Lower Valley reporter.
