Rising Up With Sonali

Immigrants, Advocates Rally to Save DACA

On the fifth anniversary of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, we’ll examine the various threats it faces as 800,000 young immigrants outed themselves to the government so they could live without fear. My guest Juan Escalante a DACA recipient will join us. Then, as Republicans prepare to re-write the US tax code in favor of the rich while Americans are distracted, Hunter Blair of the Economic Policy Institute will explain the reality of how little in taxes US corporations actually pay. Finally, we’ll hear from Alexander Klimburg, the author of a new book called The Darkening Web: The War for Cyberspace. The book explores the increasingly tense battle lines drawn around the Internet as governments vie for control over our digital world.
