Immigration Edition.

Arkansas has a new law banning sanctuary cities, which imposes state funding cuts to cities that don’t cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Other Republican-led states have passed similar laws. On the other hand, a new law in Arkansas grants in-state college tuition to DACA recipients and other immigrants and nursing licenses to DACA students. And in Colorado, a new law expanding access to driver’s licenses for the undocumented is going into effect. These and other news developments are discussed in this edition.

Guests: Marissa Molina, Colorado Immigration Manager,, Denver, CO; Mireya Reith, Founding Executive Director, Arkansas United, Fayetteville, AR

Puerto Rico Hit by Powerful Quakes.  Puerto Rico has declared a state of emergency after an unusual series of powerful earthquakes hit the island. The quakes, the most damaging in more than a century, triggered blackouts and landslides, damaged roads and bridges, and collapsed buildings. This is a report on the disaster and the plans to prepare for more and stronger quakes.

Guest: María Christina Muñoz Vega, Journalist, Radio Universidad de Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR
