Politics 2018

IU-Purdue Fort Wayne

Andy Downs, the Executive Director of the Mike Downs Center for Politics at IU - Purdue Ft. Wayne, was with us on "Regionally Speaking" on Monday  to talk about the political climate in 2018 that will result in issues before voters, and about some of the issues that could come up in the 2018 General Assembly session.  Here's the conversation.

Today:  Northwest Indiana activist Ruth Needleman is back in the studio for an update on events that include the debate around immigration issues such as the proposal to obtain land in Elkhart County for an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center and the Gary-Chicago International Airport's plan for a Homeland Security and Customs center.  Ruth also talks about this week's workshop in Gary sponsored by State Senator Eddie Melton and the Urban League of Northwest Indiana.
