    Debates over immigration continue to rage as there is passionate disagreement on how to best address the current problems. Elbert Guillory, a former State Senator from Louisiana, returns to Fault Lines to give his thoughts on the current immigration debate and how American citizens are being impacted by policies made in Washington DC.

    In a disturbing trend, suicide rates among US farmers have been aggressively on the rise. Mint Press News staff writer Whitney Webb joins the show to explain why this has been occurring and if there is more despair on the horizon for American farmers. For the final segment, Disobedient Media founder William Craddick returns to discuss efforts from inside the intelligence community to sabotage possible advances in US-North Korea relations. Faux journalist and known CIA asset Ken Dilanian is at the center of recent leaks involving North Korea, and Dilanian's suspect reporting will be analyzed on today's show.
