Denied Asylum, But Terrified To Return Home

In May, Lourdes walked across the bridge from Mexico to El Paso, Texas, and requested asylum. The first step is an interview with an asylum officer. "I told him that I have the evidence on me," Lourdes said, through an interpreter. She told the asylum officer about the scar on her arm, and the four missing fingers on her left hand — all evidence, she says, of a brutal attack by a gang in her native Honduras. But the asylum officer rejected her claim. "I don't know what happened," Lourdes said. "I don't know how I failed." Across the southwest border, immigration lawyers say they're seeing an alarming jump in the number of asylum-seekers turned away at the earliest stage of the process — what's known as the credible fear interview. "That was shocking to have received a negative credible fear result," said Linda Rivas, the executive director of the Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center in El Paso, which is representing Lourdes and other asylum-seekers.

Paramount President Fired Amid Allegations of Racially Charged Comments

Amy Powell's five-year run as head of Paramount Studios' television division came to a halt on Thursday. She was suddenly ousted after an internal investigation of her alleged use of racially charged language, according to The Hollywood Reporter . Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos announced Powell's dismissal in a memo to staff. "Having spent the past several days conducting a thorough investigation into this matter and speaking to those who were present, our Human Resources and Legal teams came to the same conclusion, and we have made the decision to terminate Amy's employment, effective immediately," the memo stated. Powell's immediate release from the company came as a result of an incident that allegedly occurred in June. Fortune reported that Powell became irritated after reading a tweet by Tracy Oliver – the writer slated to work on a reboot of First Wives Club and known for co-writing Girls Trip .

Episode 854: The New Socialists

Three years ago, the Democratic Socialists of America had about 6,000 members across the country--fewer than the American Racing Pigeon Union. Since then, DSA membership has shot up more than 600 percent. And Democratic Socialist candidates are popping up across the country. One of them, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is likely to land a seat in the House of Representatives this fall. Today on the show: How an ideology that was political poison for decades worked its way back into mainstream American politics. We'll meet some of these new socialists, and try to figure out what they want the economy to look like. Music: " Drive Through Window ," " Mystery Inc " and " Backbeat Beatnik ."

The Market For Air

Jake Dell is the 5th generation owner of Katz's Delicatessen — America's oldest Jewish deli. A few years ago Jake had a problem. The neighborhood was changing, his overhead and his property taxes were skyrocketing, and he started to wonder, can a family-owned deli survive in one of the world's most expensive cities? And then he realized he had something he could sell, something worth more than sandwiches and coleslaw, something that had been right under his nose the whole time... or rather right above his head. Today on the show: how something completely invisible and completely intangible can shape the world around us in very real ways. Music by Drop Electric . Find us: Twitter / Facebook .
