The Latest Episode of Our Podcast, “ICE and USCIS” is Available Now

 

This week’s edition of the America’s Voice podcast, “180 Days,” is now available. The weekly podcast covers what’s been happening in the weeks and months before the March 6, 2018 deadline for DACA. We cover the fight to protect Dreamers and pass the Dream Act – and other immigration news.

ICE is becoming the political enforcer of Trumpism, and last year arrested 171% more immigrants without criminal records than the year before. As Dan Savage wrote this week:

ICE tosses men, women, and children into for-profit prisons before sending them back to countries where they may have no family and, in many cases, don’t speak the language. ICE is tearing American families apart and destroying children’s lives.

Meanwhile, USCIS is sitting on 20,000 DACA renewal applications, even though it means that Dreamers are in danger of losing their jobs and may face deportation.

Listen to episode 24 of our podcast below, and tune back in next Friday for more.
