Visions 2018: The Immigration Debate

A look at how the political debate over immigration has reached a fevered pitch.

We're celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a Special Visions 2018. We dive into the red-hot immigration debate and share the powerful story of a young woman making her American dream come true. We meet the man who made the biggest hand-to-hand drug bust in U.S. history.... plus, a father and son looking to MAKE history. We'll tell you about the gift that saved a life and how evacuees of Hurricane Maria are weathering one year after the storm.

Note: The show is set at Indigo Arts Gallery, inside a new exhibition called Five Cuban Outsiders. All of the artists featured are self-taught and working in a variety of mediums from painting to sculpture and works on paper. Several started creating art when they were struggling with mental illness.
