The Trump administration is denying refugees and immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries entry to the United States. Trump’s also calling for local law enforcement to help detain undocumented immigrants for deportation. Mayor Landrieu has stated the “NOPD will not be coerced into joining Trump’s deportation army.”

Last month, the New Orleans City Council's Community Development committee introduced an ordinance implementing a city wide rental registry beginning in January 2018. The ordinance, sponsored by Latoya Cantrell and Jason Williams, will require rentals to meet a check list of health and safety requirements before the property can be rented out. 

Maxwell Ciardullo, Director of Policy & Communications at the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center, joins us to talk more about the "Healthy Homes Ordinance".

For several months, independent producer Eve Abrams, of Unprisoned, and WWNO news director Eve Troeh have been learning about and reporting on funding for public defense, and a drastic measure taken by the Orleans Parish Chief Public Defender this year.

The result: an hour-long collaboration with Reveal, from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX.

Listen here to "If You Can't Afford a Lawyer."

Richard Campanella

Each month Richard Campanella explores a different story of New Orleans' geography and architecture, with  WWNO News Director Eve Troeh.

After the sleek lines, steel and glass of Modern architecture was embraced by New Orleans in various forms from the 1920s to the early 1970s, it was firmly rejected as the century closed. Campanella chalks this up to sentiment about the city's economy, and its outlook for the future.

In her first edition of All Things New Orleans, new host Janae Pierre shares some of her radio inspirations and her interests in the city. After the recent death of Edgar "Dooky" Chase Jr., we hear about the political legacy of the iconic restaurant he built with his family and wife Leah Chase. Plus, a new study shows the BP oil spill eroded wetlands more than previously thought. It's All Things New Orleans.

TriPod: New Orleans at 300 returns with a portrait of Mother Catherine Seals, one of the city’s most prominent 20th century spiritual church leaders.

Mother Catherine Seals is a mysterious figure. There’s not much written about her, and there are only a few photographs of her. So a lot of what we do know about this spiritual mother is hearsay.
