Last week, nearly 2 million Hong Kong residents gathered to protest a newly proposed extradition bill. Helen Raleigh, senior writer at the Federalist, joins the show to explain the current extradition agreements held between Hong Kong and China, why so many in Hong Kong are angry about the bill and how the extradition bill, if passed, would threaten Hong Kong’s rule of law. After that, Acton’s Trey Dimsdale is joined by Anne Rathbone Bradley, affiliate scholar of economics at Acton, and Adam MacLeod, professor of law at Faulkner University. Together, they break down Kisor v. Wilkie, a case currently pending in the Supreme Court.

    Interesting interview and discussion.  I fear that Hong Kong and, eventually, Taiwan will be swallowed up by Communist China but that was set in motion in 1999.  Unfortunately for Hong Kong, they are just not that important economically to China anymore.  The discussion of administrative law was also interesting.  Thanks for this podcast.
