Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
A Socialist activist from Mexico joins us today to offer his analysis of the upcoming July 1st elections where left-leaning candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is leading in the polls. Fausto Reyes will also discuss the broader struggles for progressive reforms between elections, the state of NAFTA, and US-Mexico relations under Donald Trump. Then we'll turn to author Khaled Beydoun to discuss his new book American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots and Rise of Fear. As the Supreme Court gets ready to hand down a decision on Trump's Muslim ban any day, we'll examine the history of state-sponsored Islamophobia. Finally, the Seattle City Council has repealed its own head tax aimed at big corporations like Amazon. Just weeks after the tax passed unanimously, it was overturned 7-2 as council members caved into Amazon's threats. We'll hear Socialist councilmember Kshama Sawant explain why the tax was so important.  Fausto Reyes, Khaled Beydoun, Kshama Sawant
