Top Stories: Immigration Advocates Protest ICE And Tarrant County Partnership

Mar 8, 2018

The top local stories this evening from KERA News:

Last year, Tarrant County signed an agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to help the federal agency detain undocumented immigrants.  On Thursday, that partnership was at the center of a forum hosted by the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and as KERA’s Christopher Connelly reports, it was also a cause for protest.

  • In 1968, NASA launched Apollo 8,  the first manned spacecraft to orbit the Moon and return to Earth. In this week’s Art&Seek Artist Spotlight, the Verdigris Ensemble – a new North Texas choral group – takes reporter Hady Mawajdeh on an interstellar journey inspired by that trip nearly 50 years ago.
