Becoming Tang Sauce: A Conversation With Hip-Hop Artist John Manselle-Young

Twenty-five-year-old hip-hop artist John Manselle-Young is well-known on the Connecticut stage -- performing under the pseudonym Tang Sauce. Coming up, we sit down with the musician to talk about his latest projects and hear his music live on-air. 

But first: President Trump's recent immigration order -- we take a deeper dive into what it really means. We also hear how some undocumented residents are preparing for potential raids in their communities.
