On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: The government has just hours to meet a crucial deadline to reunite migrant parents and their children who've been separated at the Southern border. Attorneys and advocates on the ground are not confident that'll happen. A local attorney shares her frustrations of reuniting her client with their child.

Plus, our political experts discuss the latest national, state, and local political stories with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.

Also this hour: In the wake of Harvey, Houston homeowners face a pivotal decision — should they stay or should they go? We seek to better inform Houstonians how to make that decision, including the costs for all possibilities.

Then, last month, Sugar Land's Simone Manuel capped off her collegiate swimming career by being named the NCAA's 2018 Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. We revisit our conversation with her about her career and her mission to encourage more minorities to take up competitive swimming.
