Sanctuary Cities; H-1B Worker Visa Reform

Featured Audio

As federal immigration rules tighten, some communities, Cincinnati for example, are pushing back by declaring themselves "sanctuary cities."  And some object by indentifying as a "welcoming city," as Cleveland Heights did in a 6-1 council vote this week. What exactly does that mean? And what repercussions may come if a proposed state law aimed at punishing sanctuary cities gains approval? Discussion, on The Sound of Ideas. Then, a look at the H-1B visa program and why some feel it needs reform.
