On this episode, Frey Lindsay speaks to Lord Alfred Dubs about the halt of the Dubs amendment (which tried to bring unaccompanied child refugees into the UK, don’t forget), and the paltry excuses given.
Then, New York Times Magazine staff writer and Slate Political Gabfest host Emily Bazelon joins us to discuss the revised Trump travel ban, and how the courts are going to receive it.
And finally, we’ll hear from journalist Lili Bayer and Lydia Gall of Human Rights Watch on the unprecedented passing of a bill in Hungarian parliament that allows the government to intern all refugees in camps along the border. Even for Hungary, that’s a big move.
