A New England Governor is helping lead the charge against the immigration and refugee ban enacted over the weekend. Rhode Island’s Gina Raimondo (@GinaRaimondo) has launched an online petition against what she calls "President Trump's unconstitutional and un-American executive order, implementing a Muslim ban." Right now, Rhode Island law enforcement does not share information on the immigration status of people they arrest unless there is an outstanding order of deportation. Since she took office, Governor Raimondo has been pushing a plan that would give drivers licenses to undocumented immigrants... and, more recently, she's championed a Sanders-esque plan for higher education. Governor Raimondo joins Jim to discuss her plans, the petition and whether the Trump administration will retaliate against New England Democrats.
