November 14 2016 – Austin Kocher
In this episode we come back to the conversation we had last March with Austin Kocher – PhD student at the Department of Geography of the Ohio State University – on how a possible Trump Presidency would affect US immigration policy. As we all know, against all odds Trump was indeed elected as the new President of the United States. And as becomes apparent now that he will most likely (be able to) come through on his anti-immigration ‘promises’, Kocher concludes that the silver lining in all this is that people are showing up and standing up against xenophobic, racist and sexist immigration issues; and that eventually our only true hope against such forces is a new internationalism: a solidarity movement across borders.
