Rising Up With Sonali

Trump Demands Dems Sacrifice Some Immigrants for Others

As the deadline for DACA recipients to renew their status passes Donald Trump issues a wishlist of hardline demands on immigration, turning the dreams of immigrants into more of a nightmare. On today’s show we’ll turn to Chicano Studies professor, Roberto Flores for more. Then, as stories about filmmaker Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assaults snowball, my guest Jane Piper will dig into the question of how a repeat sex offender could get away with his crimes for decades and retain his status and power. Finally, in the wake of the worst wildfires in Northern California’s recent history, we’ll examine how climate change impacts communities of color hardest and how some groups are fighting for a just transition to a clean energy economy. My guest Denise Fairchild will discuss the new book she has co-edited, Energy Democracy: Advancing Equity in Clean Energy Solutions. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
