On Tuesday at the White House, Donald J. Trump made an attempt at bipartisanship on immigration. But, as the evil Ramsay Bolton in "Game of Thrones" might say: "If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention." Republicans quickly criticized Trump for appearing to make concessions, and conservatives in the House of Representatives rolled out a legislative package that takes a hard line on immigrants, including those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. Joining Dan to comment on national politics this week: Herb Smith, professor of political science at McDaniel College.

With the Maryland General Assembly open in this election year, Mileah Kromer, director of the Goucher Poll, talks about the legislative session, the state's June primary and the November election.

Mileah Kromer is an associate professor of political science and the director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Goucher College, and she oversees the Goucher Poll.
