Foreign Policy

Foreign policy was front and center in the final presidential debate. While most American voters remain focused on domestic issues, what happens on the international stage can quickly become any administration's primary concern. Whether it's trade, the environment or national security, international relations have a profound impact on u.s. policy, affecting all of us. So we discussed U.S. foreign policy with our guests: Mohamed Daadaoui, Associate Professor of Political Science at Oklahoma City University. Louis Furmanski, Chair of the Political Science Department at the University of Central Oklahoma. Peter Gries, Director of the Institute for U.S.-China Issues at the University of Oklahoma. And Mike Boettcher, ABC news correspondent and Correspondent in Residence at the OU Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The Hispanic Community in Oklahoma

There are more than 51,000,000 Hispanics in the United States, and almost half of them are eligible voters. That's 11% of the voting population. About 332,000 Hispanics reside in Oklahoma, and although they are a small voting bloc, their impact on Oklahoma's economy and culture is unmistakable. Joining us to talk about the rise of Hispanics in Oklahoma are: Ron J. Jackson, Jr., staff reporter for Oklahoma Watch, and Giovanni Perry, member of the League of United Latin American Citizens.

DREAMers Mobilizing Hispanics

As the largest minority in the United States, the Hispanic vote is coveted by both the Republican and Democratic parties, especially in the face of immigration issues. But Hispanics aren't just waiting for the parties to reach them; rather, the youth of Oklahoma's Hispanic communities are becoming increasingly involved in politics, providing a bridge between the national stage and their fellow immigrants.

Listen To Me 9-14-12

With the general election less than two months away, the campaign season is in full swing. As part of a joint partnership with the PBS Newshour, our reporters are out talking to voters about issues important to them in a new segment called "Listen To Me". Voters are asked three questions: what issue is most important to them, are they hopeful, and is the political system broken. This is an excerpt from the Oklahoma News Report.
