He discusses his yearlong lockdown during the pandemic, why he decided to get vaccinated now, and why we should all get vaccinated when our number is called. He also shares the benefits of all the solitary time in his 353-day quarantine, his "liberation day" list of things to do once the vaccine has taken effect, the racial and socioeconomic disparities in vaccinations, and why we must all continue to be vigilant until Covid is gone for good. Finally, Michael warns of the three major problems with the Biden administration this week: bombing Syria, going soft on the minimum wage increase and giving Saudi Crown Prince MBS a free pass after ordering the killing of a Washington Post journalist.

The Democrats’ Long War on Immigrants
As Joe Biden took the oath of office this January, Guatemalan security forces at the Honduran border thwarted thousands of U.S.-bound migrants. While decades-long American imperialism has facilitated displacement throughout the region, the U.S. is increasingly outsourcing its deadly immigration policy. This week on Intercepted: The Biden administration announced it will begin to process the 25,000 asylum seekers stuck in squalid border town camps as part of Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy. But immigration advocates fear President Biden will not reverse the bipartisan trend of his predecessors to further militarize the southern border and expand the reaches of immigration enforcement — policies that have led to more migrant deaths and detention in recent decades. Despite Biden’s executive actions to reverse the Muslim ban, initiate migrant family reunification, and fortify DACA, his administration has indicated that it will continue to support Mexican and Guatemalan armed enforcement of their borders on behalf of the U.S.T The activist and writer Harsha Walia joins Intercepted to discuss the Democratic Party’s fundamental role in shaping the long arc of U.S. border policy and why the practice of “prevention through deterrence” will continue to incur more suffering and preventable deaths. She also presents an abolitionist view of a world without borders. Walia’s most recent book is “Border and Rule: Global Migration, Capitalism, and the Rise of Racist Nationalism.”   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
