Every so often, TOTN will feature a segment called "How I Got that Story." Essentially, it's our excuse to talk to seasoned, rockstar reporters about how they snagged their most recent policy changing, talk-of-the-town news story.

Today, we take you to the border of the country, where haphazard medical care is being given at immigration detention centers. It's the latest investigative piece from The Washington Post's Dana Priest, and her colleague, Amy Goldstein.

Post reporters Dana Priest, the Pulitzer Prize-winner, famous for exposing the CIA's secret prisons (aka "black sites"), and the degrading conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and Amy Goldstein, who covers national social policy and was part of a team of reporters that won a Pulitzer for their reporting of 9/11, join us today in the Newseum to talk about how they got their story. If you have questions, leave them here.
