Immigrant Activists Prepare to Mobilize against Trump

Many immigrant communities across the country fear the Trump administration will make their lives harder, but it’s also emboldened their resistance.
In an interview with Dissent's Belabored podcast, Rosanna Aran and Christina Fox of the #SomosVisible campaign discuss organizing immigrants amid a climate of hostility and how they plan to keep mobilizing for economic and racial justice in New York and beyond.

Originally produced for Belabored #118.

The Campaign to #ReleaseTheMN8

Audio not available
The MN8 are a group of Cambodian American young people who came as children from Southeast Asia as refugees of the Vietnam conflict and have grown up in Minnesota, essentially as Americans. Due to past run-ins with the law and draconian immigration rules on certain felony convictions, they have been swept up in deportation proceedings, and could now be kicked out of the country at any day. Their cases represent the struggles faced by some 16,000 Southeast Asian Americans who have been ordered deported since 1998, and time is running out for President Obama to act to shield them from permanent exile.
