16: Borders Aren’t Natural

In episode 16, Yvette and Cynthia shine a light on ALEC, the organization responsible for legislation like “Stand Your Ground,” reject a world with borders, and explain the recent case that permits indefinite detention of certain immigrants awaiting deportation. They warn against ALEC’s insidious agenda, discuss the importance of the right to travel, and shame the court for not finding indefinite detention unconstitutional.
