Join Jim & Greg as they discuss the unanimous Supreme Court ruling that illegal immigrants can’t obtain green cards. They also marvel at the Guatemalan president blaming the Biden administration for the border crisis and give credit to Vice President Kamala Harris for finally telling Central Americans not to come to our border. But when will she go to the border herself? Finally, they clink glasses to a new poll showing New York City voters want more police on the streets.

 

US & Guatemala Sign “Safe Third Country” Agreement to Curb False Claims of Asylum

 

President Trump oversaw a signing ceremony Friday in the Oval Office between Guatemala and the United States for a “safe third country” agreement on asylum seekers. The New York Post reports:

The “safe third country” agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the US to apply for protections in that country instead of at the southern border [of the United States]. … The two countries had been negotiating an agreement for months, and Trump threatened Wednesday to place tariffs on Guatemala if it didn’t cut a deal.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for July 5, 2017 it’s the “Podcast of Record” edition of the podcast with your hosts Mike Stopa and Todd Feinburg. On this celebratory weekend of America’s birthday we bring you two stories from the Grey Lady herself, the New York Times, (who says it’s all fake news???) describing (1) how liberals are segregating America and (2) how they are attempting to invoke sympathy for Central Americans who are forced to cancel their well laid plans for trekking with human smugglers across the desert, children in tow, to enter America illegally.

Who could have imagined such a well-intentioned government program having consequences that, well, nobody thought of???
