Immigration Edition.

This week, Democrats hold their primary presidential election and Republicans their presidential caucuses. As the top Republican presidential candidate pledges to launch “the largest domestic deportation operation,” many wonder: what role is immigration playing in this state election? In other news, detainees in two California immigration detention centers charge that ICE failed to take basic measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19, despite a recent spike in cases. Also, facing headwinds even in their own caucus, House Republicans began a controversial process to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. What’s behind this push? These and other immigration news are discussed in this program.

Guests: Laura Rodríguez, Vice-president for Government Affairs, Center for American Progress, Washington, DC; Ana María Hernández, Civic Engagement Director, Florida Immigrant Coalition-FLIC, Miami, FL; Ever, Detained Immigrant, Kern County, CA; Mariel Villarreal, Senior Attorney, California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice-CCIJ, San Francisco, CA.
