Mayor Lyles recently wrote an open letter about immigration after she received criticism from speakers at a recent meeting regarding ICE raids in Charlotte. She talks more about that and we hear about the first meetings of her new Immigrant Community Committee - a committee Lyles convened to address the apprehensions of immigrants living in the city.

The mayor and Mike also discuss Lyles' two recent trips to Washington, D.C. — one for her recent appointment to the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, where she is the only mayor serving as an advisor, and a meeting of the National League of Cities.
