On this edition of Political Rewind, the always contentious issues of illegal immigration is back in the spotlight.  A bi-partisan group of U.S. House members is pushing hard to bring a number of reform bills to the floor for a vote, but Speaker Paul Ryan isn’t ready to play ball.  Also, the White House is under fire for promoting a policy of separating children from parents when families are apprehended by border police.

Then, in news from the governor’s race, Casey Cagle throws a lightning punch at his GOP rival Brian Kemp in a withering TV commercial.  How will Kemp respond?  Plus, Karen Handel speaks out against President Trump on tariffs.
