“Who’s Appealing to Emotion in the Debate over DACA/Immigration?” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

In a recent discussion I had on Twitter about DACA, I argued for radically expanding legal immigration and was accused of appealing to emotion. Was I? Or was my interlocutor (and do immigration opponents do so, more generally)? This and more on today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

One Week From Today, February 10, 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT): Yaron Brook & Lindsay Perigo Debate on Trump, Immigration and More

Yaron Brook, Executive Co-Chairman and President of The Ayn Rand Institute and Lindsay Perigo, Founder and Principal of Sense of Life Objectivists, debate Trump, Muslim Immigration and more!

UPDATE 2/5: I just got an email from Lindsay saying that he is withdrawing from the debate, because he will not be able to adhere to my rule that neither he nor Yaron make sweeping statements critical of his opponent. I will still have Yaron as a guest to discuss the relevant issues, so I hope you will join us!

“Is Half a Loaf Better Than None?” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

Based on what I’m reading, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, is about as good as we might expect–although far from perfect. The “half a loaf” saying could also be applied to Trump’s executive order on immigration, although that seems even more problematic than the Gorsuch pick. These stories and more on today’s show.

See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.
