Guests: Sarah Kinosian, Jaya Ramji-Nogales, Anea B. Moore
On Sunday, border patrol agents fired tear gas and rubber bullets at asylum-seeking migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border in Tijuana. The incident has been condemned by some while President Trump’s allies claim such measures are necessary to control the border. Today, we’ll discuss what happened along the border, and the politics surrounding the confrontation. And we’ll look at the asylum process, how the President has tried to limit it, and how our immigration policy has shifted during the Trump administration. Our guests are Mexico-based freelance journalist SARAH KINOSIAN and JAYA RAMJI-NOGALES, professor at Temple University Beasley School of Law. For our final segment, we’re joined by University of Pennsylvania senior ANEA B. MOORE, who recently won a Rhodes Scholarship. A proudly self-identifying life-long Philadelphian, she plans to eventually bring her Oxford degree back to the city to help further education and economic development for low-income and minority families.
