Supreme Court Ruling Undermines Due Process for Immigrants

The US Supreme Court just ruled on a case over the due process rights of immigrants effectively enabling undocumented detainees to remain in US custody indefinitely. On our show today we’ll speak with Grisel Ruiz of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center to understand what that means for the rights of undocumented immigrants. Then we’ll tackle another Supreme Court case – this time on public sector unions. The court just heard arguments in the case Janus Vs. AFSCME at the heart of which is the ability of unions to survive. The case has been brought by the same forces pushing so-called Right to Work laws in states around the nation. Michael Paarlberg will explain what is at stake. Finally, we’ll look at how the history of Right To Work legislation goes back to 19th century Chicago in a conversation with labor historian Cedric de Leon.
