Immigration Ugly – This week an explosive discussion of immigration issues centered around children being separated from their parents at the border. Yet police routinely separate children from their families when a crime has been committed in all 50 states; should there be a different policy at the border? The Immigration debate and the people having the debate have all shown signs of becoming unhinged this week. Ratcheting up the hyperbolic talk was the media elites and of course the political obstructionists. Dr. Stephen Steinlight and Jim McCay will discuss the impact of this major crisis, and the odds in a legislative victory.
Supreme Court Impact – This week the Supreme Court handed down two decisions one covering the rights of states to collect sales taxes on Internet transactions, the second being one on the privacy of cell phone data as it relates to police activities for tracking potential criminal activity. Ilana Freedman and Ava Armstrong will take a look at both of these rulings and their impact.
North Korea Progress – Kim Jong Un has proposed a reunion for families separated by the war for this summer — a move in the right direction?

Liberals think conservatives are evil.” Our panel will have a special tribute to the man and the mark he has left.
