Nevertheless, the White House is angling to be out in front on the issue — rhetorically, at least. Ivanka Trump, whose branded shoe factories in China are being investigated for using coerced and forced labor, joined Tillerson to present the State Department report. In February, Trump signed an executive order to clamp down on transnational crime and human trafficking, touting the drive as a way to achieve concrete results in otherwise tricky foreign-policy landscape. He even marketed his famous pledge to build a border wall with Mexico as a tool to stop human trafficking across the southern border.
Kennex is then recalled to the force by Captain Sandra Maldonado ( Lili Taylor ), and partnered with a standard-issue MX-43 android, which he soon throws from a moving vehicle, when it threatens to report his unusual behavior. He is assigned a replacement android, an older DRN model originally decommissioned for police work and about to be transferred to the Space Station.  Created to be as close to human as possible, the DRN androids have trouble dealing with some of their own emotional responses, which was the reason they were replaced by the logic-based MX units.  Kennex's unit, known as Dorian ( Michael Ealy ), immediately proves himself unique, with a clear dislike of being referred to as a "synthetic", and a dry, friendly, sarcasm-oriented wit. Key to the story arc is the growth and development of Kennex and Dorian's relationship.
