1. Beyond the Blame Game in the Boston Bombing
The bombing at the Boston Marathon (also being called the “Patriot’s Day bombing) on Monday was a true tragedy. The blame game (with scant evidence) since then has troubled many a person accustomed to seeing facts before pointing fingers. On the show tonight, we talk to writer and law professor Khaled Bey about the effect the blame game is having on Muslim Americans and American public as a whole.
2. The Stock Act & Legislating Corruption: the story you probably missed this week.
On Monday, while the world was understandably glued to their TV sets/laptops/smart phones watching the tragedy in Boston unfold, Congress and the White House were passing legislation that makes corruption in Washington a little easier. Find out more as we talk to the Center for Responsive Politics about the roll-back of the Stock Act.
3. A new Immigration Reform blueprint unveiled.
Tune in as friend of the show Gaby Pacheco checks in about the new immigration proposal. We also talk to members of the Martin County Tea Party, which held a rally at Senator Marco Rubio’s offices yesterday. Finally, one little mention provision of the bill ends a program called the Diversity Lottery, which may have a huge impact on America’s African Immigrant communities. Black Alliance for Just Immigration’s Gerald Lenoir chimes in.
