Robert Reich: Closing the Border to Mexico is “Insane”

$1.5 billion dollars per day cross the US-Mexico border and closing it, as Trump has proposed (and recently backtracked), would be “cataclysmic,” says former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, whom Laura Carlsen interviewed in Mexico


LAURA CARLSEN: Robert Reich has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Trump administration and its policies and actions. Reich was secretary of labor in the Clinton administration, and has served under four presidents. He’s currently the Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley. He’s written 15 books and created two acclaimed documentaries: Inequality for All, and Saving Capitalism.

I talked to Robert Reich in the beautiful Mexican city of San Miguel de Allende. He was in town to speak to the Democratics Abroad general meeting. There are an estimated 1.2 million eligible U.S. voters residing here in Mexico–another sign of the close relationship between the two countries. I asked him about Trump’s international impact, the 2020 elections, the role of moral values in U.S. politics, and Trump’s latest threat to close the border with Mexico.

Secretary Reich, thank you so much for being with us today…..(
