A civil rights lawyer comments on the outcome of a recent hearing in New Orleans on the legal challenge to Texas’ SB 4 anti-immigrant law, and the challenge to ICE detention of ten-year-old disabled child Rosa María Hernández, who was released from ICE custody but her future in the US is uncertain. Also, a Vietnam veteran and leader of deported veterans talks about a rally organized at the international bridge El Paso-Cd. Juárez to commemorate Veterans’ Day and bring attention to the plight and lack of medical benefits of the deported. Also, as many are starting losing DACA protections, Dreamers urge congressmembers to sign onto the discharge petition to bring the Dream Act to the House floor for a vote, while progressive senators are warning they will oppose a government spending bill in December without an agreement on the Dream Act.
Guests: Attorney Astrid Domínguez, Immigration Rights Strategist, American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, Houston, TX; Francisco Lopez, Director, Deported Veterans Support House- Juarez Bunker, Cuidad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico; Attorney Rosalba Piña, Immigration Law Expert, Chicago, IL.
