If President Joe Biden gets his immigration bill passed there will be a path for 11 million illegal aliens to get American citizenship. Marion explains what the President will have to do and why the term alien is being changed. Jarlath asks about the impact the bill could have for then undocumented Irish in America. Vicious snow storms have rocked Texas this week leaving millions without power. The crisis on top of a crisis brings to mind the humanitarian crisis at the border and Jarlath asks if President Biden has made any moves to change conditions there. Finally Marion examines the “Framing Britney” documentary and some of the most despicable characters involved. This conversation covers a lot including the delay in revealing Trump’s tax returns and China’s attempt to claim that the virus emerged from a Maryland laboratory rather than Wuhan.

and Jarlath will do his best to include it in the next episode.
