Episode notes

President Joe Biden is planning to announce a sweeping new policy that would lift the threat of deportation for tens of thousands of people married to U.S. citizens. It's an aggressive election-year action on immigration that had been sought by many Democrats. Biden hosted a White House event to celebrate the Obama-era directive that offered deportation protections for young undocumented immigrants. Klaus Larres, a Distinguished Professor of History and International Affairs at UNC-Chapel Hill, joined Jeff Hamlin on the WPTF Afternoon News to discuss how immigration could prove to be a major sticking point in this year’s election.
