The Costs of Lost US Credibility
Immigration and the Political Explosion of 2016
Nicholas M. Gallagher
Good evening, listeners! We’ve got another great show for you this week as host Richard Aldous discusses with David Schenker how America’s credibility has been affected by the recent nuclear deal with Iran before speaking to Nicholas M. Gallagher about today’s Trump-influenced debate over immigration.
Richard first welcomes David Schenker, director of the Program on Arab Politics at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, to the program to discuss how America’s traditional allies in the Middle East are reacting to the decision to make a nuclear deal with Tehran.
Then, TAI staff writer Nicholas M. Gallagher returns to the program to look at what’s happening in modern debates over immigration, looking to the past to try to learn more about the way in which mass immigration is currently coinciding with deeper changes in American culture, and why that’s proving to be such an explosive problem.
