Hey there. I’m Jacob Soboroff, a correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. I just spent a week on the US-Mexico border reporting on migrant families. AMA!
Hey there, Reddit. I’ve covered many topics in my reporting for NBC News and MSNBC, including the 2016 election, the opioid crisis and everything in between. I spent the past two weeks covering the border crisis and the separations of migrant families at the US-Mexico border, including going inside the country’s largest immigration processing center and taking a months-long look at the realities on the ground for Dateline’s “The Dividing Line.” AMA!
And yes, it's really me.
UPDATE: Thanks everyone. Signing off. This was really fun. And we will keep on this story. I am grateful to be one small part of the large NBC News and MSNBC team on this story. As of right now, there are still 2,047 kids separated from their parents. And the military was just asked to build new detention centers for 12,000 people. This story is not over. Keep in touch:
