Our guest this week is Jose Antonio Vargas, journalist, filmmaker, immigration rights activist, and founder of the non-profit group Define American. We talked with him about how the media covers the immigration issue, the rapidly changing look of immigration in the United States, President Trump's immigration policy, and why he went public with his undocumented status in 2011.

- Divide and Rule Remains the American Game in Syria -- We are learning that despite the hysterical Washington debates and a dyspeptic main stream media, the great imperialist project to secure American hegemony over the world rolls on unabated. And the Syria regime change project began the moment the anti-colonial Syrian government set its goals of Arab national sovereignty and a socialist economy.
- Taylor Report: “I Am Not Your Negro” Norman Otis Richmond: See This Film!, Segment 1 -- James Baldwin intended to write a book about the assassinations of Black leaders, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, and Malcom X to be titled: Remember This House, but the task was never completed. With this film, director Raoul Peck attempts to convey the message intended by Baldwin. Norman Otis Richmond makes it clear “I Am Not Your Negro” has to be seen. Baldwin’s powerful exposure of American racism grows stronger by the year.
