Categories:

Tue, 06/03/2008

On June 12th, 2007, as workers at the Del Monte
processing plant in North Portland, neared the end of their work shift, agents
from the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement
or ICE, raided the plant, detaining 167 people, separating families, and
spreading fear and anxiety through out the community.

Tonite on Circle A Radio, nearly one year after the raid,
we’ll explore the current state of immigration policy in the US, and let you
know how to get involved in the local struggle for civil rights.  We talk with Monami Maulik of Desis Rising
Up and Moving in New York City, Arnoldo Garcia of the National Network for
Immigrant and Refugee Rights, based in Oakland.  We also bring you local organizers Shizuko Hashimoto of the
Portland Central Solidarity Committee, and Marco Mejia of the New Sanctuary
Movement.
