Our 9 month series, New Hampshire's Immigration Story explored just that... the vast history of who came to New Hampshire, when they came, why they came, the challenges they faced once they landed on Granite State soil and the contributions that they brought to our state. The Exchange, Word of Mouth, and our News Department looked at the issue of immigration from its first arrivals to the newest refugees calling New Hampshire home.We saw how immigration affects our economy, health care, education system, culture and our current system of law. We also looked at what's going on in New Hampshire today, as we uncovered the groups, societies and little known people who are making an impact all over the state.Funding for NH's Immigration Story is brought to you in part by: New Hampshire Humanities Council, Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation, The Gertrude Couch Trust0000017a-15d9-d736-a57f-17ff89e10000

Families At The Border: A 1A Special

Eric Gay/AP
Protesters in San Antonio pray during a Rally For Our Children event to protest the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.

New Hampshire Public Radio will air a one-hour special from 1A titled "Families At The Border" Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at the southern border of the United States under the federal government's "zero tolerance" policy.

A Quinnipiac University poll found that while a third of voters oppose the policy - more than half of Republicans polled support the policy.

For all sides, this issue is more than just policy, it cuts to what America represents and what is wants to be. Who is this country for - and what might it look like in 50 years?

In this special program, 1A will look at the debate over the border, and the country.

Guests:

Rabbi Gerry Serotta, executive director, InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington.

Franco Ordoñez, White House Correspondent, McClatchy Washington Bureau.

Anna Galland, executive director, MoveOn Civic Action.

Dr. Lisa Fortuna, medical director of Medicine and Adolescent Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine.
