Judge Blocks Termination of DACA.

Calling it an “arbitrary decision,” a federal judge in California blocked President Trump’s order to end DACA protection for young immigrants. A young plaintiff says this decision is giving more impetus to Dreamers push for a permanent legislative solution in Congress and encourages DACA recipients to begin renewing their permits as soon as DHS provides instructions.

Guests: Marielena Hincapié, Executive Director, National Immigration Law Center, Los Angeles, CA (audio cut); Dulce M. Garcia, Esq, Garcia Law Firm, DACA Recipient and Plaintiff in the Lawsuit, Chula Vista, CA

Crackdown on Legal Cannabis. As a new voter-approved law legalizing marijuana takes effect in California, the Trump administration prepares to unleash a crackdown on marijuana stores in states where the weed is legal. This is a discussion on the story.

Guest: Armando Gudiño, Policy Manager, Drug Policy Alliance, Los Angeles, CA.

Voter Fraud or Suppression? President Trump disbanded a controversial commission that he had created to investigate voter fraud, after claiming that millions of undocumented had voted in the 2016 presidential election. Trump ordered the DHS to take over and continue the probe. Also, civil rights leaders continue challenging the push by the US Department of Justice to include a question on citizenship in the 2020 Census form. They say it would sabotage the count and discourage Latinos from participating.

Guests: Juliana Cabrales, North Carolina Director, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials- NALEO, Raleigh, NC; Lydia Camarillo, Vice President, Southwest Voter Registration and Education Project, San Antonio, TX.
