Today, the Spanish-language press highlighted a protest in Georgia by members of the Ku Klux Klan against the walkers of the “Trail of Dreams” who advocate for the DREAM Act.
Today, the Spanish-language press takes up the story of two Argentinians, former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) informants, who now face deportation themselves. Brothers Emilio and Analía Anaya had made an agreement with the federal agency to identify undocumented immigrants involved in the drug trade, gangs, human trafficking, prostitution and other crimes, in exchange for S-visas which would give them a path to citizenship. The Anayas’ case, initially brought to light by El Diario-La Prensa (New York), has also revived interest in Salvadoran national Ernesto Gamboa, who is also on the verge of being deported, and whose situation was revealed by an NPR investigation. La Raza carries an exclusive interview, with La Opinión writing on the Anayas as well.
