The 52nd Congressional Representative is now the Chairman of the NewDemPAC.

The Congressman also shared stories of his father, a retired minister from Detroit, who led the effort to desegregate churches in the 60's.

Included in the stories Peters told was the remarkable tale of when Martin Luther King Sr. spoke at his father's church during one of the most tumultuous times in our nation's history.

Trump's Rhetoric

Immigration is an issue that has seen many Sessions of Congress and President's stumble.

I asked Rep. Peters what he would like to see fashioned as a compromise on the very contentious issue. He certainly had pointed remarks of the President and his rhetoric.

Peter's also handicapped the chances of Democrats taking over the House in November.
