Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast my sweeties! Come to refill the old political obsession tank? Here to procure that pithy but deep diatribe fix? Well you are in the right place! This is edition number 223 and we call it the “No Match Podcast” with your absolutely unmatchable hosts, Right Coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and Left Coast AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one). This week we have our dear friend and special guest Jessica Vaughan, she of the Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies, to discuss with us the return (did I hear anyone say “Hallelujah”???) of the No Match letters that are now going out to every employer in America who submits an I9 form for even one employee whose name and social security number do not match what is in the Social Security database.

Jessica tells us that many of these no matches are just…typos! Many are just…name changes! And many are (shhhh) illegal aliens either using stolen or fabricated SS#’s. This is where the actual problem is. The Democrats know it. The Chamber of Commerce knows it. And they are screaming that these letters are going out and good lord that is a good thing!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for April 18, 2018. It’s the Illegal Sanctuary edition of the program, with Mike taking the week off to get settled into his new life as resident of the Sanctuary State, beautiful California. In place of Mike, we’re joined by the smarter and way more fascinating Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS.org) in Washington DC.

Our two topics are:

First a political earthquake when the GOP actually wins a government shutdown fight, followed by a real one in Alaska—we’ve got your tsunami update.

Jessica Vaughn on the state of the DACA debate after the Schumer Shutdown fail.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 5, 2017 – number 152 – it’s the San Francisco Dodges a Bullet edition of the show with your hosts Hartford radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.

Today we have special guest and good friend (really, she’s a friend…we have had a beer together at a restaurant and everything. I think it was twice even) Jessica Vaughan. Jessica is the Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies and about as knowledgeable as anyone in America about immigration issues. (And, did I mention? she’s a friend).

Will the GOP trip over its own disfunction and blow the tax cut deal? We talk to Steve Hayes of Fox News and the Weekly Standard about it.

Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies on the horrific verdict in the Kate Steinle case as a San Francisco jury lets the killer walk.

Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies has been covering the Kate Steinle killing and the sanctuary cities issue from the beginning. In this bonus edition of the podcast, she offers her analysis of the jury’s verdict, how it happened and the impact this verdict is likely to have on immigration enforcement policy.

Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies destroys the dumb idea that is the Diversity Visa Lottery system.

It’s finally “GOP Tax Reform Day” in Washington DC.

We celebrate the SCOTUS ruling that, to no sane person’s surprise, the suspension of President Trump’s ban on travel from “six predominantly Muslim countries” was an absurd invasion by judicial activists into the blatantly Executive functions of the government. This is, as you have guessed, the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, episode 128, with our guest Jessica Vaughan from the Center for Immigration Studies.

(Apologies that this episode has some serious unbalance to the audio – we will be improving the technology in the coming weeks. Thanks for your patience).
