Attorney Anne Chandler has been providing legal aid to asylum-seekers at the U.S.-Mexican border for years. A few months ago, she noticed things were changing.

On our podcast this week, Chandler, who runs the Houston office of the Tahirih Justice Center, shares some of the traumatic stories she’s heard from clients.
