Becca Heller likes to say that she leads an army. But her soldiers don’t battle with guns. They’re lawyers and law students. They use the law to protect the legal and human rights of refugees seeking shelter and assistance, and their work has never been easy.

Heller is in Utah this week, and she joins us Thursday to talk about America’s immigration policies and the challenges of refugee resettlement.
