Immigration Edition.

The Senate failed to deliver an immigration plan and it is unclear if the Senate will reopen a debate after the recess. Meanwhile, Dreamers will face the risk of deportation when DACA ends in two weeks. What’s next for the Dreamers? Also, faith leaders hold vigils every day of Lent at the office of Republican congressmen in Bakersfield urging them to support the Dreamers. This program also includes news on reported ICE raids in Texas and California, ICE audits to agribusiness in California’s Central Valley, and the twist in the case of an activist from the North West who received a notice to appear from ICE, after it was learned that a Washington state agency gave the activist’s personal information to federal officials.

Guests: Juan Manuel Guzman, Advocacy and Policy Manager, United We Dream, Washington, DC ; Alex Gonzalez, Organizer, Faith in the Valley, Bakersfield, CA; Maria Guadalupe Cervantes, Organizer, El Despertar del Sueño Americano, Fresno, CA; Maru Mora Villalpando, Leader, Northwest Detention Center Resistance, Director, Latino Advocacy, Seattle, WA.
