Immigration Edition.

As a federal court hears a motion to block Texas SB4, a new state law that allows local and state police to arrest and expel suspected immigrants, civil rights advocates escalate protests as part of a statewide campaign. In other news, Florida’s SB1718 is described by many as an aggression to the immigrant’s life since, among other things, it criminalizes the transportation of undocumented people from outside to inside the state and stipulates that driver’s licenses granted by other states to undocumented people are no longer valid in Florida. Seven months since SB1718 went into effect on July 1, to what extent is it really being implemented? And how much is it affecting the day-to-day activities of the immigrant community in that state? Finally, after the Republican-controlled House impeached DHS’ Alejandro Mayorkas, how will the Democratic leaders of the Senate respond? These and other issues are covered in this program.

Guests: Marisa Limón Garza, Executive Director, Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Coalition, Eagle Pass, TX; Gerardo Guzmán, Reporter, Atlanta, GA; Maribel Hastings, Consultant and Columnist, America’s Voice, Washington, DC.
