Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

The Rob Porter scandal has raised concerns about domestic abuse cover ups, White House security gaps, and more disruption in the administration. Former Staff Secretary during the Clinton Administration, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY-18) joins me on the show today to give us his insights on the fallout and more on the latest from Capitol Hill.

Trump has campaigned on the threat of immigrant gang violence in the US. New efforts have empowered local law enforcement and Immigration and Customs Enforcement to pursue potential gang members, eroding the rights of suspects and going after minors. Reporter for The Intercept Alice Speri wrote an in depth piece about the pipeline from schools to detention centers. She joins me on the show to talk all about it.

Yesterday, Planned Parenthood unveiled a sweeping plan to expand access to reproductive health care in all 50 states. The initiative will work in partnership with state lawmakers, advocates, and fellow advocacy groups. To combat the threats from the Trump-Pence administration, Planned Parenthood is working to advance protections for birth control coverage, expanded access to abortion, and changes to make sex education more inclusive.  Director of State Policy and Advocacy for Planned Parenthood Rachel Sussman joins me to talk about this new campaign.
