In this 10th episode of The Rationalist, the ‘Abolish ICE?’ edition, host Mike Coté discusses the contentious topic of immigration.
He approaches the issue from a logical, centrist perspective and tries to avoid the insanely heated rhetoric currently being espoused by both the left and right. During the podcast, Mike talks through the recent genesis of this immigration furor, the family separation issue, and breaks down what the media has gotten right and wrong about its coverage of this important topic. Afterwards, he does a deep dive into several topics related to both legal and illegal immigration, including immigration levels, assimilation, border security, push & pull factors leading to illegal immigration, and the idea of abolishing ICE. Listen in for that and much more on the subject of immigration.
