Pope’s Visit, Immigration Policy, and a Tiny House

Co-hosts Gale Seiler and Greta Anderson focused on the Pope’s visit and the role of immigration issues leading up to the Iowa caucuses. Dr. Ann Clifford, the Msgr James A. Supple Chair of Catholic Studies at ISU, spoke about the Pope’s encyclical letter on ecology and what we might expect to hear from the Pope while he is in the U.S.

Hector Salamanca, from the American Friends Service Committee, talked about a project called Governing Under the Influence, which calls attention to corporate influence on immigration and other governmental policies. He also highlighted an event called Immigration, Detention, & the Iowa Caucuses, which will take place this Wednesday evening at Trinity United Methodist Church in Des Moines. And Nathan Thrailkill, who has built a “tiny house” in Ames, gave us a tour of his home.
