A Closer Look At Trump's Executive Orders On Immigration, And The Effect In Vermont

Jan 31, 2017

President Donald Trump's far-reaching executive orders on immigration rocked the country last week, and the reaction has been widespread and furious.

On the program, we'll look at what we know about the orders and the impact here in Vermont.

We're joined by Burlington immigration attorney Leslie Holman, ACLU Vermont Executive director James Lyall and Middlebury Political Science professor Matthew Dickinson.

We'll also speak to Middlebury religion professor Ata Anzali, who had been holding off on returning to the U.S. as he figured out how the ban would affect him.
