President Donald Trump says he wants to end birthright citizenship, but he might not have the full authority to do that. Plus, we speak with one of the best-known undocumented immigrants in America — Jose Antonio Vargas. And, you may not recognize the name Klaus Voormann. But some of his artwork is likely familiar, because he worked closely with The Beatles.
