What Fort Wayne has got right in its treatment of immigrants and refugees. Repairing the mess of anti immigration measures. Busing in Boston and how to transform values. The inspiring story of Mississippi’s Civil Rights movement fighting for immigrant rights and class consciousness and overcoming racial division. (13:00)

Jeb Bush is so sad. This Donald Trump supporter is the best thing ever. President Obama visits the Islamic Society of Baltimore. Marco Rubio is disgusting in his comments on Islam and your calls IMs.
