America's Voice En Español »
This week’s edition of the America’s Voice podcast, “180 Days,” is now available. The weekly podcast will run over the next six months as we approach the March 6, 2018 deadline for DACA. We cover the fight to protect Dreamers and pass the Dream Act – and other immigration news.
In the third episode, the AV team talks about the major events of this week, focusing on the activism and advocacy taking place across the country, pushing for clean Dream Act legislation – including what may have been the first ever pro-immigration rally in Brookings, South Dakota! We also discuss the controversy over CBP officials detaining a couple who needed to get emergency treatment for their infant and ICE profiling a U.S. citizen in Oregon. We also discuss the blatantly racist television ad launched this week by the Republican candidate for Governor in Virginia, Ed Gillespie.
Listen to our third podcast below, and tune in next Friday for more!
