Group Of West Virginians Travel To Texas-Mexico Border To Help Asylum-Seekers

On this West Virginia Morning, for many West Virginia residents, immigration is an issue that’s mostly only encountered in the abstract -- through news reports and from behind screens. But a group from Marshall County recently felt compelled to take a trip to the border, to see if they could do something to help asylum seekers. Glynis Board followed the group to learn more about the realities of the crisis at the southern U.S. border, and the people who would try to help.

Also on today’s show, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has selected the next two justices who will lead the court. As Dave Mistich reports, state justices also have agreed to once again limit the chief justice’s term to one year at a time.
