Under Obama or Trump, Immigrants Face Serious Challenges

mayra_machado-765x496Immigrants have faced harsh deportation and detention under President Obama. What will they face under Trump? We’ll turn to Olga Tomchin of the National Day Laborer Organizing network to learn about the case of Mayra Machado and what it means for immigrant rights. And, Greg Palast joins us to explain what the Green Party vote recount led by Jill Stein will actually achieve, and whether the crosscheck voter suppression tactic we covered before the election had an impact. Plus, author George Lakey will discuss his new and inspiring book, Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got It Right – and How We Can Too.
