US American liberals have a bit of a crush on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But Trudeau has been busy betraying environmental activists and indigenous communities. We’ll speak with Derrick O’Keefe, Canadian activist and writer about it. And, 60 human rights and immigrant rights groups are appealing to a UN panel to shut down family detention centers in the US. Erika Almiros of the group Juntos will join us. Plus, acclaimed sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild will discuss her new book, Strangers In Their Own Land: Anger And Mourning On The American Right.
