MILWAUKEE - Our Thanksgiving special is an extended interview with State Senator Chris Larson, the outgoing Democratic Leader.

We also look forward to another legislative session in the wilderness, and give a scouting report on the biggest threats to freedom and opportunity from the next conservative offensive.

WASHINGTON - In this week’s address, the President laid out the steps he took this past week to fix our broken immigration system. Enacted within his legal authority, the President’s plan focuses on cracking down on illegal immigration at the border; deporting felons, not families; and accountability through criminal background checks and taxes. These are commonsense steps, but only Congress can finish the job.
As the President acts, he’ll continue to work with Congress on a comprehensive, bipartisan bill -- like the one passed by the Senate more than a year ago -- that can replace these actions and fix the whole system.
