Ep: 4- 71 Why are we scared of Immigration? (Nov 29th, 2018)

MID-ATLANTIC - CONVERSATIONS ABOUT US AND UK POLITICS

Today we are joined by writer and foodie Doug Levy in San Fransisco and by the voice of the north Mike Holden in Preston, England.


In a week that has seen The British PM cling on to office by her fingertips we question why immigration is so important a topic on both sides of the Atlantic.


Fear of immigrants and Immigration was the not so secret sauce that led to Trump's Presidential victory and that made the UK vote to leave the EU in 2016. The outgoing Republican Congress largely supports Trump’s restrictionist rhetoric on immigration. Apparently, Republicans are favouring their base over business.
