Representative Dutch Ruppersberger

Last week, the House of Representatives voted to strip federal funding for so-called "sanctuary cities," such as Baltimore, that shield undocumented immigrants from authorities. In this hour, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, of Maryland’s 2nd Congressional district, explains why he voted against the bill. We’ll also hear what he has to say about President Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran, and the hack of the US Office of Personnel Management, which is said to have compromised the privacy of more than 20 million Americans. Also on the agenda: genetically modified foods, Baltimore’s recovery, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s decision to kill the Red Line, and the 2016 presidential race.
