The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/22/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/22/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Is Oregon an anti-immigrant state? A new study suggests it is.

A study commissioned by a consortium of Northwestern public radio stations says that a majority of Northwesterners -- Oregonians, Washingtonians and Idahoans, or whatever they call themselves -- agree with the anti-immigrant law passed recently in Arizona. In Oregon, that support is at 61 percent.

What does it mean? Is anti-immigrant sentiment more widespread than we thought? And what is that sentiment exactly? Fear, born of cultural ignorance? Economic anxiety? Good ol' racism? A toxic brew of all three? With Joe on vacation, Abe leads the discussion.

Oregon Progressive Party

The recently enacted policy of Fusion Voting may provide new clout to Oregon's six minor parties, and the Oregon Progressive Party could have an impact with a platform that includes support for single payer health care, same sex marriage, cuts to military spending and withdrawal from Aghanistan and Iraq, campaign finance reform, no job outsourcing, no Wall Street bailouts, and no offshore drilling--but the Progressive Party needs 1,000 more signatures before August 1st, just to continue to exist. Host Stephanie Potter will speak about these and other issues with Oregon Progressive Party spokespersons Philip Kauffman and Alaina Melville.
