Detroit IDs for homeless, undocumented; City population questions

The city wants to give ID cards to the homeless and undocumented immigrants. The Detroit is still losing people but not as many as before as about 3,000 people moved out between July, 2014 and July, 2015.

Part 1: Detroit IDs for homeless, undocumented

The city wants to give ID cards to the homeless and undocumented immigrants.

Some believe it's a good way to invite them to come out of the shadows and get them the help they need.

But can the city afford to give handouts to people who are already breaking the law by simply being here illegally?

On the panel:

Raquel Castaneda-Lopez, the first Latino city council member in the history of Detroit.

Jimmy "JJ" Johnson, WOMC DJ and conservative pundit.

Alexis Wiley, Chief of Staff for the city of Detroit, former award-winning FOX 2 reporter.

Thayrone X, a conservative radio host on WAAM 1600.


Part 2: City population questions

The Detroit is still losing people but not as many as before as about 3,000 people moved out between July, 2014 and July, 2015.

But that's the smallest drop the city has seen in years. Mayor Mike Duggan says it's a sign the city is finally moving in the right direction.

But the drop also knocks Detroit out of the top 20 cities in the U.S.

So is the glass half empty or half full?

On the panel:

Elena Herrada, ACLU member, Detroit School Board member, 910 AM host

Jimmy Johnson

Alexis Wiley

Thayrone X

Part 3: On the Road
