Participants march in the Muslim Day Parade on Sunday, Sept. 25 2016, in New York. Immigrant communities are now feeling uncertainty about a Donald Trump presidency.

Coming up on today's show:

  • Susan Page, Washington bureau chief of USA TODAY, offers analysis of the latest from the presidential presidential transition.
  • Omar Jadwat, staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union Immigrants’ Rights Project, discusses the legality of Donald Trump's proposal to track all Muslims who enter the U.S. and a previous iteration of this proposal implemented after 9/11, the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System.
  • Mark Lilla, professor of the humanities at Columbia University, visiting scholar at the Russell Sage Foundation and author of The Shipwrecked Mind: On Political Reaction (New York Review Books, 2016), and Dr. George Yancy, professor of philosophy at Emory University and author of Look, A White!: Philosophical Essays on Whiteness, discuss the role of identity politics as a foundation for democratic politics in an ideological age.
  • Chris Smith, contributing editor for New York Magazine, talks about his new behind-the-scenes book, The Daily Show (The Book): An Oral History as Told by Jon Stewart, the Correspondents, Staff and Guests (Grand Central Publishing, 2016).
  • We take calls from listeners who didn’t vote in the presidential election to discuss how they feel about their decision, now that they’ve had two weeks to think about the results.
