The Department of Justice has sued Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the state of Texas following his refusal to remove a barrier of floating buoys topped with razor wire along the border in the Rio Grande river.
Representative Joaquin Castro of the 20th District of Texas joins the conversation to share his thoughts on this floating border barrier and the issues surrounding its existence.
