A conversation on the State of Young Philadelphia; Obama’s immigration plans


Guests: Laura Meckler, Ben Stango, Michelle Freeman, and Kellan White

Over the course of the past week, the 2014 State of Young Philly series has been in full swing. Panels, discussions, and other events aimed toward bringing young Philadelphians together have focused on their hopes for the future of the city, especially as they look ahead to the 2015 mayoral elections. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll have a conversation on the state of young Philadelphia with community builder BEN STANGO, MICHELLE FREEMAN, the head of Witty Gritty and publisher of Flying Kite Media, and KELLAN WHITE, the community engagement and special project manager for Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds-Brown. But first, we talk to the Wall Street Journal’s LAURA MECKLER about President Obama’s immigration policy, the Republican reaction, and the risks for both parties. Last night he laid out his executive action plan on immigration which includes protection from deportation for five million undocumented immigrants. The Republicans have promised to use their Congressional majority in January to fight the plan.
