The Latest Episode of Our Podcast, "Sh-thole Shutdown," is Available Now

 

This week’s edition of the America’s Voice podcast, “180 Days,” is now available. The weekly podcast covers what’s been happening in the weeks and months before the March 6, 2018 deadline for DACA. We cover the fight to protect Dreamers and pass the Dream Act – and other immigration news.

Are Republicans about to lead us into a government shutdown? Remember: Trump’s party controls the House, Senate, and presidency. They have enough members in their caucus to pass a funding bill for the year. But because they can’t get their own house in order, they have to look to Democrats for additional votes. Democrats want to keep the government open while funding CHIP, fighting against opioids, and passing the Dream Act. Republicans have offered no counter-proposals. It seems that Republicans don’t have a plan — which means they should figure one out soon, because voters by an 11-point margin say they’ll blame Republicans for a shutdown.

Listen to episode 18 of our podcast below, and tune back in next Friday for more!
