Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
The Trump administration’s hardline approach to immigration, and its executive order banning refugees, has sent shivers through the restaurant industry — the largest private sector employer of immigrants in the nation.
