Activists from the San Francisco Bay Area culminated a month-long campaign to protest immigrant detention centers, “30 Days of Daily Actions to Close ICE Camps,” and support legislation to ban contracts with for-profit private prisons. On other news, after the Trump administration expanded in recent weeks fast-track deportations, immigration lawyers warn all immigrants, including green cards, to be prepared in order to avoid the risk of being deported. Finally, 35 years after its debut, the now restored version of Oscar-nominated El Norte is back on movie theaters with its very current story of Mayan refugees seeking asylum in El Norte.
Guests: Lisa Geduldig, Organizer, “30 Days of Actions to Close Camps,” San Francisco, CA; Alma Rosa Nieto, Vice Chair, Media Advocacy Committee, AILA, Los Angeles, CA (TBC); Gregory Nava, Filmmaker, Los Angeles, CA (TBC).
