President Trump backed down on Wednesday from his “zero tolerance” immigration policy, which separately detained parents and children who crossed the border illegally. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast team discusses the fallout from the policy and how Trump is talking about immigration in the run-up to the midterms. Also, as record numbers of Democratic women run for Congress, the crew asks why there aren’t more Republican women running.
