Also, the Senate continues to wrangle over the Biden infrastructure bill.
Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, Lebanon, joins us to discuss Iran. The US, Israel, and the UK are blaming Iran for a drone attack on a ship and greenlight a dangerous Israeli retaliation. The trio of nations is ignoring the killing of an Iranian nuclear scientist and multiple explosions at Iranian facilities that were tacitly acknowledged as having been perpetrated by Israel.

Carlos Castaneda, immigration lawyer, joins us to discuss immigration. The pandemic and subsequent border closings have made clear the importance of immigrants from Latin America in the US economy. The shortage of these workers is creating major problems for industries such as landscaping, restaurants, farm work, and the seafood industry. Also, Vice President Kamala Harris is having major problems instituting her "root cause" plan to address immigration, as the plan will not face the factor of imperialism as a foundational factor.
