OCALA, Fla., December 7, 2014 — Immigration is the issue now, with Republicans running on an anti-amnesty platform in the midterms and President Obama signing an executive order which gives illegal aliens all but a path to citizenship.
Much is being said about the matter, but how many people truly know what they’re talking about?
Dr. Stephen Steinlight is a vociferous opponent of illegal alien amnesty and a senior policy analyst at the CIS. Before joining the organization, Dr. Steinlight built an extensive career in American Jewish and civil rights causes, as well as academia; having taught at New York University and the University of Sussex, among others.
Dr. Jim Picht is the senior political editor for Communities Digital News. An associate professor of economics at Louisiana’s Northwestern State University, he has advised many foreign governments about financial matters. While his fiscal ideas lean right-of-center, he holds more moderate opinions about immigration policy.
Both men join us to discuss what America might expect about immigration policy during the near future. Tune in to the next Cotto & Company; a thirty-minute-or-so online radio program featuring independent voices who shape our society. Regardless of partisan registration, political philosophy, or personal worldview, the goal is sharing diverse, and often innovative, ideas that we all can learn from.
I’m your host.As with my work as a Communities Digital News journalist and nationally syndicated columnist, I hope to bring about deeper understanding of the issues which impact our society. Even if we don’t always agree, we should be able to see eye to eye.
