Protestors gathered in Detroit trying to stop the potential deportation of Iraqi nationals. Many of the Iraqi nationals are Christians and say they’ll face death if they are sent to Iraq.";

As President Trump ramps up his campaign, his deportation policy drew protests in Detroit this week. And a West Michigan congressman who called for impeachment proceedings against the president has faced a protest of his own.

Libertarian columnist Shikha Dalmia joined Michigan Radio Morning Edition host Doug Tribou to talk about those stories, and about Attorney General Dana Nessel's decision to dismiss all criminal charges from the Flint water crisis. 

Dalmia is a columnist at The Week and a senior analyst for the Reason Foundation. She lives in Metro Detroit.

Doug Tribou joined the Michigan Public staff as the host of Morning Edition in 2016. Doug first moved to Michigan in 2015 when he was awarded a Knight-Wallace journalism fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
