Laurie Mercier hosts on this Monday after tax day. The moles discuss who controls the wealth and how it can be redistributed more fairly to insure participatory democracy and social justice.  Along with reviews and commentaries they’ll speak with Jo Comerford, Executive Director of the National Priorities Project (NPP).  The NPP analyzes and clarifies federal data so that people can understand and influence how their tax dollars are spent, and Comerford will help us understand how 40% of tax revenue that currently supports military spending could be redirected to more critical and productive needs.

Creating accountable immigration enforcement

program date: 
Wed, 04/15/2009

Over 440,000 people will be detained by the U.S. government this year. Women, children, the elderly, asylum seekers, torture victims and even long-time permanent residents will be detained for months - in some cases years - awaiting a determination on their status. Many of these people will be detained without a judicial hearing or access to an attorney in a nation that prides itself on the rule of law and due process. Will the Obama adminstration create real immigration reform to ensure the people who come to our shores are treated fairly?
