This week Matthew and I discuss presidential candidates. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, our preferred candidates, still have not released detailed immigration proposals.
Donald Trump has decided to levy tariffs on Mexican imports until they . . . stop illegal immigration? Or something? It’s not totally clear what they’re supposed to do, or what metric we will use to determine whether they’ve done “it,” but there you go. More big ideas from our big brained big boy President.
