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

Yesterday, the Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration’s attempt to rescind DACA, the program protecting hundreds of thousands of Dreamers from deportation, but the President continues to push for anti-immigrant policies. DACA recipient and Digital Campaigns Manager at, Juan Escalante, joins me on the show today to talk about the impact of the decision and the ongoing fight for immigrant rights.

Today is Juneteenth, a moment to celebrate the end of slavery in America, but at this moment we are also living with a racist president, a pandemic and economic crisis, and police violence that have all disproportionately harmed minority communities. Award-winning blogger and trans human rights advocate, Monica Roberts (AKA TransGriot), joins me on the show today to talk about the significance of the day, visibility for the trans community and more.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump’s Tulsa rally tomorrow, major Supreme Court rulings and more environmental rollbacks from the Trump administration.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.
