    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan analyze the Trump administration's immigration policies including highly scrutinized "family separation" issues.

    Greece and Macedonia have signed an agreement to change Macedonia's name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia, but this still seems to be far from a done deal. Dr. Michael Nevradakis, Host of Dialogos Radio, has been closely covering these recent developments which he will document today on today's program.

    This past weekend, independent journalist Ford Fischer covered a rally of Democratic politicians protesting the immigration policies of the Trump administration. Ford joins Garland and Lee in-studio to talk about what he heard from members of Congress at this event and how these remarks play in the current immigration debate.

    For the final segment of the show, attorney and political activist Kevin Zeese joins Garland and Lee in-studio to preview today's rally for Julian Assange outside the White House. Kevin helped to organize today's event which marks the sixth anniversary of Assange being holed up in the UK's Ecuadorian Embassy, as there still remains no concrete timetable for his possible release and exoneration.
