Understanding Asylum; Governor Kasich's Final Weeks; Cuyahoga County Jail

University of Akron law students learn to advocate for asylum seekers, through the school's Immigration and Human Rights Law Clinic.

An independent investigation into the Cuyahoga County Jail by U.S. Marshals has uncovered inhumane conditions for inmates, including food used as punishment, unsanitary living spaces, excessive use of force and inadequate medical and mental health care.

Plus, more from our interview with Governor Kasich, including thoughts on his relationship with the White House, and whether Kasich still considers himself a republican.
