Texas Standard for July 26, 2018

It’s deadline day on the Texas-Mexico border, as a federal judge ordered immigrant family reunifications completed by today. Will it happen? We’ll have the latest. Also: Texas has some of the least restrictive gun laws in the U.S. – but a decision in the most liberal district in the country is taking gun rights much further, by finding a constitutional right to openly carry firearms. We’ll explore the implications. Plus: What’s the fastest growing segment of the workforce? If you’re thinking millennials, think again. There’s a rush for jobs among people 75 and older.

All that and more, today on the Texas Standard.
