For this episode of the podcast, we specifically delve into immigration with Mario H. Lopez, President of the Hispanic Leadership Fund.
High stakes negotiations are currently underway surrounding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which President Trump recently end with a deadline of March 5, 2018.
We explore where those negotiations currently stand, whether a deal must be struck by year’s end, how family members of the DACA recipients are involved in this issue, how DACA protection affects an ability to work, travel and go to school, and what a bipartisan deal might look like.
Then we discussed the current state of border security and whether a border wall is needed. Finally, we explored how the Latino community views the GOP in the age of Trump.
