Texas Standard for July 19, 2016
Police protection: That’s the aim of a new proposal from the Texas governor. But will it work? Also, political ads: One presidential candidate has been spending a lot more than another, but do ads even make a difference these days? Plus: Why getting a license to carry is harder for some Texans, and inside the effort to make it more accessible. Dangerous streets: A Texas reporter traveled to El Salvador to understand what motivates some to make the difficult journey to the U.S. And: A new documentary lifts the curtain on a cult that was operating in one part of Texas for close to 15 years. All that and more, on today’s Texas Standard.
