Trump’s Refugee Ban Hurts World’s Most Vulnerable

Donald Trump’s Muslim ban impacts refugees dramatically. Since our president does not grasp the Geneva Convention on refugees, we’ll turn today to Oxfam’s Noah Gottschalk on why respecting the rights of human beings is kind of important. And, appropriately our next interview will focus on a new book of powerful photographs called Un-American: The Incarceration of Japanese Americans During World War II. We’ll speak with the book’s co-author Richard Cahan. Finally, we’ll turn to Stephanie Woodard about her special report for Yes Magazine on how the spirit of Standing Rock is alive in many native American communities that are fighting their own battles against fossil fuel and extractive industries.Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
