Is Seattle moving further left? What's behind the political shift and what are the impacts? Former Seattle mayoral candidate Nikkita Oliver of the Seattle People's Party, The Stranger Publisher Tim Keck and former King County Executive Ron Sims join host Joni Balter for a look at Seattle's changing political tides. Then, as the Trump administration rolls back the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, what are the implications for Washington's young undocumented immigrants? DACA recipient Ray Corona and Solicitor General Noah Purcell of the Washington state attorney general's office weigh in. Can a multi-state lawsuit co-led by Washington prevent the dismantling of DACA?
