Feeling Targeted By The Travel Ban & A Conversation With Governor John Hickenlooper

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments for and against President Donald Trump's proposed travel ban in October. Until then, parts of the ban are in effect, affecting travelers to the U.S. from six majority-Muslim countries. Writer Wajahat Ali and attorney Rabia Chaudry are Muslim-Americans who have thought deeply on what this moment signals for the nation, both legally and morally. They weigh in on national security concerns, religious extremism and the rise in hate crimes against Muslims in the U.S. Then, we switch gears for a conversation with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. A former geologist and beer brewer, he's now a leading voice on reviving local economies. We'll talk to him about the pros and cons of Colorado's strong economic growth and why he's teaming up with Republican Governor John Kasich of Ohio to fight against the GOP's health care plan.
