Share This:

This week’s edition of the America’s Voice podcast, “180 Days,” is now available. The weekly podcast will run over the next six months as we approach the March 6, 2018 deadline for DACA. We cover the fight to protect Dreamers and pass the Dream Act – and other immigration news.

Republicans are claiming that any government shutdown, if one happens, will be the Democrats’ fault. But let’s remember, Republicans own the whole government. They can either try and work with the extremist right-wingers in their caucus, or pass the Dream Act, which the vast majority of Americans support.

Listen to episode 12 of our podcast below. Tune in next Friday for more!
