    Jesse Jackson and the researchers from the Flint Water Study join host Brian Becker on today's episode of Loud & Clear.

    Residents forced to drink water contaminated by lead and other pollutants. Children are sick, their lives affected perhaps permanently while politicians and bureaucrats are engaged in a huge cover-up. Jesse Jackson calls for officials to go to jail and for the Obama Administration to declare Flint a disaster area. Becker is also joined by Siddhartha Roy, a researcher with the Flint Water Study at Virginia Tech that first revealed that the water there was corrosive.

    Finally, Becker is joined by Juan Jose Gutierrez of the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition in Los Angeles to discuss the Supreme Court yesterday announcing they would taking up President Obama's Executive Actions that were supposed to provide 4.7 million adult immigrants relief from arrest and deportation. The two discuss what this could mean for millions of undocumented immigrants who could be eligible for work authorization if the reforms go into effect.
