This week, I talked with Representative Veronica Escobar about Covid and immigration in her district of El Paso. Gina Pérez of the Texas State Board of Education explained how continued cuts to school programs inspired her to take action. Our political contributor Errin Haines brought updates from the political world, and business contributor Ruth Umoh analyzed Black homeownership. Medical student Nia Buckner explained why she and other students updated the Hippocratic Oath, and entertainment contributor Casey Mendoza reflected on the representation of Latinos on television. Plus, journalist Paola Ramos took us looking for the meaning of “Latinx.”
