Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3-10 years in prison for multiple counts of sexual assault and rape. The sentencing took place the same week that accusations of sexual assault have been swirling around Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. On our show today, attorney and Yale Law School alumnus Lisa Bloom will join us to make links between the two stories. Then, well turn to Erin Quinn of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center to discuss Homeland Securitys new proposed rule curbing green cards for immigrants who partake of public assistance. Quinn will explain how such proposals are intended to invoke fear among immigrant communities. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
