For our last big episode of the season, Doomed to Repeat is touching on one of the most polarizing issues in American politics: immigration and so-called "sanctuary cities." In the age of the Dreamsicle President, matters of law and migration have taken a vastly greater political, economic, cultural, and emotional valence that at any time in recent memory. In dissing Trump, we do not mean to belittle the issue at all. People are afraid. One of our two co-hosts, in fact, has family who are now unable to flee violence and disorder in Libya and come to join family in the United States because of the administration's appalling "Muslim ban." To address this issue we have a historian talking about sanctuary cities (Dr. H. Robert Baker) and an attorney specializing in immigration law (Georges Hoffmann).
