In a little more than a week we’ll have a new president and a new administration. President-elect Donald Trump and some of his picks for top positions in the executive branch have sparked many questions and concerns about civil liberties in this country.
Alan Dershowitz is one of the foremost civil liberties defenders in the country. He joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to talk about these questions, as well as what the next four years mean for American Jews and our relationship with Israel.
“We’re entitled to hate people who hate America, but we’re not entitled to use the law against them,” says Dershowitz.
