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:
1) Sanctuary Cities – we focus on pushback in California against its Sanctuary State status by cities who want to cooperate with ICE, as well as a story in Weymouth, Massachusetts about an illegal alien Uber driver accused of rape, but released from jail by a judge who set bail at just $10,000 and allowed the defendant 24 hours to turn in his passport. During the 24 grace period, instead of turning in his passport the defendant is believed to have fled to his native Ghana, and
2) In-State Tuition – now legal in 20 states, we discuss whether young people in the country illegally should be treated as legal residents and be receiving benefits.
Todd does a Shower Thought on the Philadelphia Starbucks Not-Sipping-While-Black story, and our Hidden Gem is “In the Court of the Crimson King.”
