Asylum seekers are still stuck at the California border and Vice President Mike Pence will be in Calexico Monday to assess the situation.

About 200 people from Central America arrived at the border of Mexico and California on Sunday, where they turned themselves over to the border patrol seeking asylum. They aren’t being processed and it’s uncertain whether they will be.  

Political Junkie Ken Rudin joins Insight host Beth Ruyak to talk about what will happen to the caravan and what the political ramifications could be.

We'll also hear analysis on talks between North and South Korea and examine reaction to the comedian Michelle Wolf's performance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
