Immigration In Trump's America

Feb 15, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” we take a deep dive into immigration issues, something that touches the lives and businesses of more Georgians than you might realize. 

President Trump has issued three executive orders relating to immigration issues including pushes to crackdown on so-called "sanctuary cities," to build the border wall between the United States and Mexico, and the currently suspended travel ban. Atlanta is one of several major cities seeing "round-ups" of undocumented immigrants. Trump says he's just making good on his campaign promises. Our panel discusses a number of issues relative to immigration, legal and illegal.

The panel also talked about Trump's meeting today with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the future of the relationship between the United States and Israel.

Finally, we take a brief look at state politics and action at the Georgia General Assembly.

Panelists:

Greg Bluestein – Political Reporter, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Chip Lake – Republican Strategist

Dr. S. Rashid Naim – Georgia State University, Islamic Speakers Bureau
