The Biden administration is expected to lift Title 42 restrictions at the U.S. border on May 23, which will trigger more migration than we've ever seen, some predict. Joining us today is Todd Bensman (toddbensman.com), Senior National Security Fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies. He examines the problems with our completely open and collapsing border, how migrant criminals are gaming the system, not just on the southern border but at our northern one as well, and what exactly Title 42 is. Title 42 is not related to immigration, but once it's lifted, our already historic immigration problems will become so much worse.
There are many facets of the current Russia-Ukraine issue that are not being reported on, so we contacted our man on the ground in Kiev, Reuben Johnson, who agreed to take a few minutes today to fill us in on what's really going on over there. He examines the debate about whether the U.S. should even get involved in the conflict, Article 5 of NATO's charter, and the Budapest agreement of 1994 – all in advocation of defending Ukraine from Russian advance. He also looks at China and the controversy surrounding their hosting of the Olympics.
The Biden administration's Middle East policy, especially where it concerns Iran, is reverting back to what the Obama administration had done before – despite the previous failures. Back with us today is Ken Timmerman (kentimmerman.com), CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. He explores why, if it always ends in failure, the current administration would bother with the Obama-era Middle East plan. Apparently Iran has not had to concede anything in this newly resurrected Iran Deal. He also looks at the future of the Abraham Accords now that the Trump administration is out of power.
