Immigration Edition.

A federal operation revealed that hundreds of Mexican and Central American migrants were being forced, sometimes at gunpoint, to work in farms in Georgia. Members of Congress are now asking: how were the farms able to bring the victims to the U.S. using a lawful H-2A visa or “guest worker” program? In other news, New York City became the largest city in the US to allow non-citizen residents to vote in local elections. A former councilmember sponsor of the bill has been invited to discuss the local and national ramifications of the legislation. These and other news are discussed in this edition.
