Politics of Prosecution - Series 1

Welcome to the Politics of Prosecution Podcast. This podcast examines the interaction between politics, broadly defined, and criminal prosecution on the local, state and federal levels. Our goal is to produce a variety of shows using different media. Our first series of eight episodes is produced by students in High Point University’s Honors Program. They will look at a variety of issues raised by ongoing events.

The eighth episode explores the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy—better known as DACA—that the Obama Administration initiated and the Trump Administration has attempted to terminate. The United States Supreme Court recently heard the legal battle and will decide the case sometime before the end of its current session in June. This episode describes DACA’s creation, the debate over immigration and the Trump Administration’s efforts to end the program.

Also, this will be the last episode of series one for the time being as the semester-long course associated with this series is complete. Series one may be back next fall. In the meantime, the podcast will continue as we move into other series beginning in January. We hope you will stick with us and tune in during 2020!
