Civil Politics (11/20/2015): The Dire Reality of Refugees and Paris

We speak about the attacks on Paris and its ramifications; how we approach refugees while considering our safety, why there is a debate over how and who we allow to come to the US, the opinions of our presidential candidates, and what being a refugee or immigrant means. In the second half of the show, we talk about the American SAFE Act and the group Anonymous’ cyber attack on ISIS.
