Donald Trump declares Jerusalem the capital of Israel and announced that the US would move its embassy from Tel Aviv into Jerusalem. His announcement has sparked global condemnation and violence on the ground. On our show today we’ll turn to our Palestine and Refugees correspondent Huwaida Arraf for context on why Jerusalem is so important to Palestinians and how there is actually a bi-partisan consensus in Washington on siding with Israel and the Jerusalem issue. Then, Harvard Professor Danielle Allen will share with us a personal and heartbreaking story of her cousin who was caught in the criminal justice system and what his experience teaches about mass incarceration and the war on drugs. She has just written a new book about it called Cuz: The Life and Times of Michael A.
