Scott interviews Ashtyn Tayler, who provides first aid to refugees on the Southern Border of the United States. She described the squalid conditions there, with recent immigrants suffering from unchecked head and body lice infestations, having gone more than 10 days without bathing in Trump’s camps, where they were forced to eat, defecate and sleep in the same confined spaces.
