A federal judge ruled this month that 1,600 families separated at the border must be reunited. Frontline correspondent Martin Smith joins us to tell the story of these children who entered the U.S. with their parents only to be detained elsewhere. The Frontline episode “Separated: Children at the Border” airs tonight at 9 on KERA-TV.
