Today we're headed to the origin of the crisis at the border, Central America. We'll speak to our Honduran voice about the waves of people traveling north to the US border. Are they really seeking asylum or is that an excuse to move to America for work?
Then, we'll check in on Turkey where Erdogan is up for another election; and everything he has been pushing for in the past year comes down to this vote. Will he become the sultan? We speak to Oguz in Turkey and find out what he thinks the outcome will be.
Finally, it's a Change Is Hard for the ages. They're still doing it for the kids but are people waking up? We take an in-depth look at Maddow's meltdown and a CNN panel's logical reaction to Lewandowski's womp womp (or wah wah if you're not the press).

We'll speak to an economist in Europe who will explain Trump's tariffs and what the US got right or wrong.
