Today:  Karina Donayre with the Interfaith Community for Detained Immigrants, advocates for immigrants and their families, is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the shift of some detainees from Illinois county jails serving as ICE detention centers.  Some immigrants are being released,  but others are merely shifted from one county jail into another and remain in detention.   Neil Samahon, the  president and CEO of Opportunity Enterprises in Porter County, talks about the organization's expansion plans along Lake Eliza: an 18,000 square foot Respite House.  Antonio Ciaccia, president of 3 Axis Advisors working with the National Consumers League, has the latest on what we should know about keeping prescription drugs costs under control -- by being aware of the role of pharmacy benefit managers. 

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
