Sanctuary | Cook County Jail | Enemy of the State

Sanctuary - Philadelphia minister offering sanctuary to an immigrant says when laws break the backs of God's people, time to mull "breaking those laws". The Rev. Robin Hynicka and his congregation are certainly circumventing U.S. immigration law by sheltering an illegal immigrant inside the Arch St. Methodist Church in Philadelphia. But Rev. Hynicka answers to a higher law. He says the immigration policy ordering the deportation of Javier Flores Garcia is unjust – a law God gives him the power to question. And he's not the only cleric in the U.S. who feels and acts this way. As Scott Pelley reports, Arch St. Methodist is just one of more than 800 churches and synagogues offering sanctuary to illegal immigrants in response to the new crackdown ordered by the Trump administration.

Cook County Jail - Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart runs one of the largest jails in the country, located in Chicago. But it's his unconventional and controversial style that puts him in the spotlight.

Enemy of the State - Art that's relevant is political, says provocative Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Ai Weiwei's work has gotten him harassed by police, thrown in detention and driven out of the country. But in order to be relevant, he must be political, as he tells Holly Williams. The acclaimed artist has left China and is now staying in Germany, he says, out of concern for the safety of his young son. But he doesn't rule out moving back to China, where authorities tried to censor his work, which they considered subversive. In one famous piece, he photographed himself giving the middle finger to a portrait of China's revered former dictator Mao Zedong.
