11/19/15: Governor Bans Syrian Refugees / Flint Water Fallout

Posted by MiWeek Editor on

Host Christy McDonald and contributors Nolan Finley and Stephen Henderson discuss the issues making news across the state.

  • Governor Bans Syrian Refugees – In light of the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, Governor Snyder has suspended the acceptance of Syrian refugees into Michigan, citing safety concerns. The MiWeek team debates the Governor’s stance and talks about the attack’s impact on security in the United States, as well as on the presidential race.
  • Flint Water Fallout – There’s more fallout from the Flint water situation. Residents have filed suit, the head of the city’s Public Works resigned, and doctors’ offices are flooded with parents worried about their children’s lead levels. The MiWeek team looks at these latest developments.
  • Stephen’s Childhood Home Project – MiWeek contributor Stephen Henderson is embarking on a project to renovate his abandoned childhood home in Detroit and make it a home for a literary professor at Marygrove College. The MiWeek team talks about the impact of his project in the neighborhood.
