Second Reading Podcast: A Conversation with Perla Trevizo and Andrew Calderón about Operation Lone Star

In a new Second Reading Podcast, Jim Henson talks with journalists Perla Trevizo of The Texas Tribune and ProPublica and Andrew Rodriguez Calderón of the Marshall Project about their team's collaborative reporting on Operation Lone Star. The first of a projected series of articles by a team of reporters including Trevizo, Calderón, Lomi Kriel of the Tribune and Pro Publica, and Keri Blakinger of The Marshall project appeared this week in The Marshall Project, ProPublica, and The Texas Tribune.

The conversation touches on Texas attitudes toward border security spending by the state. For reference, the graphic below breaks down results on a question about state spending on border security from the February 2022 University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll
