What Matters for Thursday, July 23, 2015

We thought we might need an ark to get to the studio today as storms rolled through the area, but as always, it was well worth the rowing. Chad kicked off talking Uber versus taxis and cities who are taking issue with the private vehicle transportation service. The sun came out over the studios in time for John Locke Foundation Director of Education Studies, Terry Stoops, to join Chad. They discussed school choice, how correlations can be distorted and changes that are being made to Kindergarten health assessment forms due to suits filed by groups like Civitas and parents pushing back over unnecessary information asked on the forms.

In hour two, 3rd District Congressman Walter Jones discusses two bills he co-sponsored. H.R. 3011, known as Kate’s Law, would ensure any adult illegal immigrant who is deported from the U.S. and comes back into the country illegally will face of sentence of no less than five years in prison. H.R. 3009, Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act, would deny federal funding to sanctuary cities across the nation. If you remember, Chad shared last week that some of the biggest cities in our state are sanctuary cities. That means protection is provided to illegal aliens, including those that have committed violent crimes, at the taxpayer’s expense. The bill passed the House by a vote of 241-179 just prior to Congressman Jones joining Chad on the show. It’s a riveting conversation you don’t want to miss.
