The Supreme Court this week heard arguments for and against President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban Version 3.0. The decision is expected in June. As justices tackled the issue, a new report by the Council on American Islamic Relations has found a sharp rise in Islamophobic incidents in the US, especially from within federal government agencies. CAIR’s Robert McCaw will join us. Then, four years after the Flint Water crisis came to light, residents of the city are still angry about what they have faced. Michigan United activist LaShaya Darisaw will explain why the people of Flint are still demanding justice. Finally, Eric Holt- Gimnez will discuss his new book, A Foodie’s Guide to Capitalism: Understanding the Political Economy of What We Eat.
