Sen. Perdue’s Immigration Bill Dealt Significant Defeat

Feb 16, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, the U.S. Senate shoots down Senator David Perdue’s plan to dramatically curtail legal immigration and it fails to find common ground on any immigration reform measure.  

What’s next for DACA and the Trump wall?  Plus, Governor Deal introduces a bill to cap his seven-year effort to reform Georgia’s criminal justice system, but he is getting pushback from some in the law enforcement community.  We’ll discuss.  Also, Democrats running for governor speak out in the wake of another school shooting, Savannah has a plan to deal with a controversial Confederate monument and Atlanta’s new mayor speaks out about the growing voice of African-American women in politics.
