⁣Lt Col Allen West has not only had a distinguished career serving in the military but he also served his country in Congress. His life has been all about service. He joins us to discuss the latest GOP primary results and why immigration is the No1 issue with voters. Allen is currently running for the Dallas County GOP chair, 'Fight Local: Win National' is his tagline and we start with why local politics is so important. Dallas is without a Republican representative so he has put himself forward as the person to put the party on the front foot and win back some of those seats to provide an opposition block to the Democrats. We the move onto Trump's latest triumph in the primary where he defeated Nikki Haley in New Hampshire, it seems that no one can stop the Trump Train that has America First as its key policy above all else, Haley is hanging on, but for how much longer? We then look at immigration and why this issue has become so important to voters. Are they are beginning to realise, If you don’t have a border, you don't have a country?
