Los Angeles teacher Laura Palacios confronts the second day of a citywide strike with coffee, doughnuts and a sore throat.
Laura Palacios is a Los Angeles public school teacher married to another teacher. Today the mother of two joined 33,000 other union members in the first L.A. teachers walkout since 1989. This week Capital & Main will follow Palacios during the strike.
This month U.S. Border Patrol agents met 200 peaceful, interfaith demonstrators with military-style M4 rifles and tear gas launchers.
U.S. soldiers are not the only ones heading to the border in advance of the migrant caravan. Armed civilian militias have joined a call to deploy their members.
