PRI's The World: 06/24/2016 In a historic vote, the British have decided that their country should leave the European Union. We're going to devote the entire show to the so-called "Brexit." We'll speak with Brits who supported the "Leave" campaign, and those who voted to stay in the EU. And, will Britain's decision to leave affect its so-called "special relationship" with the United States? Also, does the Brexit victory's populist roots echo the Trump phenomenon in the United States?
PRI's The World: 06/23/2016 The US Supreme Court deadlocks 4-4 on President Barack Obama's executive actions on immigration ? so what does that mean for millions of undocumented immigrants in the country? Plus, as British voters cast their ballots in the so-called "Brexit" referendum, we hear from Scotland, where the "stay" vote is expected to carry the day. Also, The World's Carolyn Beeler tells us how the US Navy is preparing for the growing problem of rising sea levels at the largest naval station in the world ? in Norfolk, Virginia.
PRI's The World: 06/22/2016 US politicians talk a lot about bigger border walls and keeping refugees out, but in Europe, there's a lot of talk about open borders. One writer argues that Europe could learn something from the US in this regard, and that Europeans should, in fact, consider closing their borders to new arrivals. We also have part 3 of our series on what America can learn from the Netherlands when it comes to dealing with rising sea levels. Plus, we hear about lessons learned for American soccer after Tuesday's drubbing of the US Men's National Team by Argentina.
