On Second Thought For Monday, December 11, 2017

The Trump Administration’s immigration crackdown has led to an uptick in arrests nationwide. New federal data show arrests in Georgia and the Carolinas are also up from the last fiscal year. The president’s push to be tough on illegal immigration also includes policies to build a massive wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Historian Kenneth C. Davis explains that anti-immigrant sentiment is older than America itself. This month, doctors in China were scheduled to perform the first-ever head transplant.

Georgians In Washington Push Back Against Trump

On this edition of Political Rewind, two prominent Georgians push back against President Trump: FBI Director Chris Wray defends the honor of his agency in response to Trump's Twitter attacks, and Congressman John Lewis says he won't attend the opening of a Mississippi civil rights museum if Donald Trump shows up. Plus, will Al Franken's resignation from the U.S. Senate put more pressure on Republicans to speak out against those in their own party accused of sexual harassment? Georgia's own Newt Gingrich says no way. And, Georgia House Speaker David Ralston warns that giving local communities control over Confederate memorials would be divisive.

Journalist Steve Twomey On Pearl Harbor

We’re commemorating the 76th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor this week by revisiting our conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Steve Twomey. His book “ Countdown to Pearl Harbor: The Twelve Days to the Attack ” is out now in paperback . Our conversation is an eye-opening look at the mistakes, misconceptions and miscommunications that prevented U.S. forces from recognizing that the American fleet at Pearl Harbor would be the target of a massive Japanese attack. Today it is unthinkable that a Japanese fleet would have been able to cross the Pacific Ocean undetected. But back in 1941, that’s exactly what happened: 30 Japanese ships sailed 3,151 miles for 12 days without ever being seen. Twomey explains what measures the Japanese took in order to keep their plans a secret. Twomey also tells us stories about what it was like to be on both sides of the attack. We hear about the moment Admiral Husband Kimmel found out that the Pacific Fleet was under attack.
