Host Steve Walsh follows up on a potential immigrant detention center in Hobart, with the spokesperson for GEO Group. Yesterday we talked to some of the activists who are fighting the effort.

We’ve also been looking the issues of revamping a neighborhood plagued by abandoned house. We have a couple interviews about different issues impacting the Aetna Neighborhood – one is a group which rehabs homes another is a national expert on what happens to neighborhoods once the school closes.

We’ll also have an exit interview with Cedar Lake’s Town Manager Ian Nicolini, before he leaves for sunny central Indiana.

Guests include:

John Bushemi, attorney Geo Group

Roger Hayward, It’s Gary’s Time

Emily Dowdall, The Pew Charitable Trusts

Ian Nicolini, Cedar Lake town manager
