Interview with Alexander Villarreal about child exploitation

The state found me on the streets alone when I was two years old. I had lice, was suffering from malnutrition, and cigarette burns covered my body. While in the foster care system, I went through seven foster homes in which I continued to endure abuse. When I was four, a loving family adopted me. Because of my abuse, I had severe scarring all over my body, and my adoptive parents had to put vitamin E oil on me each night before I went to bed. As I got older, the state provided information regarding my abusive family history, but by that time my heart was hardened and guarded. When I became a teen, my parents were unable to emotionally reach me. They sent me to boarding school, but I left and ended up on the streets.

Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

Host Celeste Carey interviews Ediberto Román: author of Those Damned Immigrants: America's Hysteria over Undocumented Immigration.

In Those Damned Immigrants, Ediberto Román takes on critics of Latina/o immigration, drawing on empirical evidence to refute charges of links between immigration and crime, economic downfall, and a weakening of Anglo culture. Román utilizes government statistics, economic data, historical records, and social science research to provide a counter-narrative to what he argues is a largely one-sided public discourse on Latino/a immigration.

Portland police officer Todd Tackett, who the city's Citizen Review Committee found last night was disparaging to an African American man, was promoted this afternoon to sergeant.

Last night's ruling was the result of a complaint filed by 62-year-old Floyd McCorvey last summer that Tackett disrespected and racially profiled him when he falsely accused him of being a pimp and a crackhead and referred to his low-income housing before citing him for jaywalking.

The Portland Police Bureau's initial investigation into the incident found that allegations that Tackett was disrespectful to McCorvey were "unproven."
