This week on the "Laura Flanders Show," Ravi Ragbir and Sara Gozalo talk about the importance of defining and defending sanctuary cities, and give examples from The New Sanctuary Coalition of New York on its goal to push back state pressure on immigrants.

Laura Flanders Show

What most Americans know about Puerto Rico is based on a colonial fantasy, says journalist and Columbia University professor, Ed Morales. This fantasy, and the reality it obscures, is the subject of his new book, Fantasy Island. In this episode, Laura interviews Morales and scholar/activist Rosa Clemente about the personal and political implications of the island's ongoing debt crisis, recovering from Hurricane Maria, and #RickyRenuncia, the intersectional protest movement that led to the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rosselló in the summer of 2019.
