Cellar Door Skeptics 114: Deportation without Explanation

Better late than never, Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week with a more serious episode than the previous week. This week the duo tackles Mexican American Repatriation. They talk about how America has before exported immigrants both legal and illegal without much consideration of the family. As the team learns about how history seems to repeat itself, they reflect on how Trump wants to bring back deportation without explanation.

Their conversation continues with another discussion on income inequality. This time though they analyze a study that has come out about how 1% of owning more than 80% of the wealth last year. The analysis does not just cover our country but the whole world.

The closing segment shares their views on the new solar tariffs that the current administration is going to allow. They talk about how the coal industry and oil industry will be able to continue their pollution tactics while harming the solar industry. Also the new tariffs do not demonstrate a desire to grow local businesses as local business to the US make all the components for the frames that are used in the US. We talk through how the new tariffs won’t help make america great again.
