michael wildes debuts on “tomi” hosted by tomi lahren to discuss immigration issues

Tomi Lahren is an American television and online video host whose thoughtful and insightful commentary has positioned her as the fresh voice of the often overlooked group – conservative millennials. She currently hosts Tomi for TheBlaze, a multiplatform news network.

Recently, Australia’s Immigration Department commissioned a television movie that shows the hardships of Afghans attempting to reach Australia. The film, entailed “Journey”,  aims to dissuade potential migrants by showing them difficulties they may experience en route. In particular, Michael and Tomi discussed the deterrence factor of such a movie and the cost benefit analysis of such a documentary.
