Fight Over Immigration Ban Continues

After a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously refused to reinstate President Trump’s executive order to restrict travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries, the president vowed he would take other actions to increase national security – as soon as next week, he suggested at a press conference Friday. UC Berkeley Law School interim dean Melissa Murray and KQED California Politics and Government senior editor Scott Shafer join Thuy Vu.

California Public School Policy

The confirmation of Betsy DeVos, a staunch supporter of so-called school choice, as secretary of the U.S. Department of Education raises questions about the impact of federal policy on California’s public schools and their roughly 6 million students. Also this week, San Francisco led the nation in making City College tuition free for all residents of the city. Learning Policy Institute President Linda Darling-Hammond and UC Berkeley education professor Janelle Scott join Thuy Vu.
