Convicted Killer James “Whitey” Bulger Killed
South Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger is dead at the age of 89. According to the latest reports, a fellow inmate with mafia ties at the Hazelton Penitentiary in West Virginia is being investigated for his murder. Bulger had been serving a life sentence for his involvement in 11 murders, although he was accused of plenty more.

Jim Braude was joined by Brian Kelly, a former assistant U.S. Attorney and the lead prosecutor responsible for putting Bulger behind bars and now a partner at Nixon Peabody; Peter Gelzinis, a former longtime columnist at The Boston Herald, who covered Bulger's trial and life extensively, who is also a lifetime South Boston resident; and John "Red" Shea, who was in Bulger's Winter Hill Gang in the 1980s and 1990s and spent 12 years in prison for cocaine trafficking.

Trump’s Latest Immigration Ploys For His Base
Birthright citizenship has been the law of the land in the United States since 1868, when the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was adopted. But according to an Axios interview released today, Donald Trump is looking to change that through executive order — something that many legal scholars, and Speaker Paul Ryan, say he cannot do. Between Trump’s latest extreme immigration announcement, and the 5,200 active military troops headed to the border to stop the migrant caravans made up of men, women and children, there is a great deal of concern about the threat the pose, or face, when they reach the U.S. border.

Jim Braude was joined by Heather Cox Richardson, a political history professor at Boston College and author of "To Make Men Free: A History of the Republican Party;" Kari Hong, assistant professor of law at Boston College Law School with a focus on immigration policy; and Major Matthew McKnight, a reservist in the Marine Corps who served in Iraq and is now Chief Commercial Officer at Ginkgo Bioworks in Boston.

Warning From A Holocaust Survivor
The first services were held today for some of the 11 victims of Saturday's mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. President Donald Trump was scheduled to arrive, but both local and national officials of both parties declined to appear with him today, while an open letter circulated from a progressive Jewish organization saying Trump isn’t welcome in the city until he denounces white nationalism. Meanwhile, a public art exhibition on the Boston Common by Italian-German photographer Luigi Toscano has gained new significance for some. His work focuses on the harrowing stories of Holocaust survivors, driving home the relevance of that dark chapter in history that happened not so long ago. Reporter Stephanie Leydon has more.
