Monday Morning Politics: Snowden, Surveillance, and Border Security
Monday, June 24, 2013
NSA leaker Edward Snowden has left Hong Kong and is reportedly headed for asylum in Ecuador (via Cuba). Meanwhile, the conversation over the impact of the surveillance tactics employed by the US government continues, including a heated exchange over the role of journalists on Meet the Press yesterday (see video below). Plus: an immigration bill is expected to be voted on in the Senate this week, but the arguing over border security provisions may hold up its passage or stall it in the House. Molly Ball, political reporter for The Atlantic, discusses the latest news out of Washington.
