U.S. infrastructure has just received a report from the American Society of Civil Engineers. The overall grade? D+. Diane Swonk from DS Economics stops by to explain the benefits of investing in infrastructure. Next, we’ll look at how a February shooting in Kansas against two men from India is causing fear among international workers. And finally, we’ll discuss whether U.S. stocks can continue with their winning streak.
