San Diego Wildfires: The New Reality, FEMA Response, Illegal Immigrants

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

This week, San Diego recovers from the wildfires that ravaged the county. Will these massive wildfires be the norm in our region?

Also, FEMA holds a fake news conference to discuss the federal wildfire response in Southern California.  Why was the media shut out?

And, undocumented immigrants who live in our region are also impacted by the fires.  How did their experiences compare to that of other evacuees?

Guests:

  • Scott Lewis, co-executive editor of voiceofsandiego.org.
  • JW August, managing editor for 10 News.
  • Ruben Navarrette, Jr.,  a member of the editorial board of the San Diego Union-Tribune , and a nationally-syndicated columnist.
