Rising Up With Sonali

House Passes Immigration Bill Encouraging Racial Profiling

The Republican-dominated House has passed the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act, which critics point out violates due process rights and encourages racial profiling. The act passed at the same time as the future of the DACA program is in grave danger. On today’s show we’ll speak with Thomas Saenz of the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund for more. Then, Stephen Spaulding of Common Cause will join us to discuss the many questions of ethics violations swirling around Donald Trump, his staff, and cabinet, from Steven Mnuchin’s treatment of the US treasury as his personal piggy bank, to Trump’s golf courses as points of access for wealthy elites. Finally, author and historian Betsy Hartmann joins us to discuss her new book, which is so relevant in these times. It’s called The America Syndrome: Apocalypse, War, and Our Call To Greatness. We’ll hear part 1 of a two part conversation. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
