Good morning and welcome to the show!!! Today on the Hammer Radio Network, we talk about the stories that you want to hear about, including this one:

In the photograph, a woman clutches two children in diapers, one of them barefoot, as they run from a smoking tear gas canister fired by American border officials. That arresting image, taken in Tijuana, Mexico, by the photojournalist Kim Kyung-Hoon of Reuters, spread rapidly online. It prompted outrage after a peaceful march by Central American migrants in Mexico veered out of control on Sunday afternoon, as hundreds of people tried to evade a Mexican police blockade and ran toward a border crossing into San Diego. In response to the chaos, which the Homeland Security secretary said included some migrants throwing projectiles at Customs and Border workers, American border officials temporarily shut down the crossing in both directions and fired tear gas to push back migrants from the border fence. The photo drew anger from many over President Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric

Hammer & Ellen J will also have music and entertainment, box office, and maybe Brian will make a live call or two. If you would like to join us, the number is 319-527-6099.
