Secretary of State John Kerry is on his way to Cairo today, to participate in ceasefire talks with Israel and Hamas.

This past weekend, he said that U.S. intelligence found the evidence against Russian-backed separatists stacking up over the downing of a Malaysian airplane over Ukraine on Thursday. And the immigration crisis at the border, along with the debate over it in Washington, continues.

NPR’s Ron Elving joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson and Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the week ahead in politics.
