    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker discusses yesterday's Supreme Court hearing on whether or not President Obama’s executive orders on immigration are constitutional with attorneys Alan Diamante and Zak Wolfe.

    With a potential gridlock-looming at the Court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, is there hope that the almost 5 million immigrants affected will be granted relief from deportation?

    The Democratic Party primary campaign is taking a crucial turn as New York State votes today. New York, a Democratic bastion and the state represented in the Senate by Hillary Clinton, could be a major turning point in the race. Having cut Clinton’s lead by half can Sanders realistically score an upset? And will that upend the Democratic contest? Becker is joined by journalist and political analyst Sam Sacks.

    With over 1000 arrests, two weeks of protests in Washington D.C. have put a spotlight on the corporate domination of US politics. Demanding legislators take action on money in politics and voter ID restrictions sweeping the nation. Could this be a turning point for the billion dollar American election process? Rachel Butler of Greenpeace and a key organizer of Democracy Awakening joins Becker to discuss the recent wave of protests and arrests.
