Episode 4: #DefendDACA video-podcast
“What’s happening is a major assault on immigrant communities that…will go down in the history of this country as one of the most inhumane moments of discrimination towards one particular group.”
That’s how Walter Barrientos, Make the Road organizer and longtime leader in the immigrant rights movement, described the Trump Administration’s recent termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In the latest episode of our podcast, we speak with Walter and other New Yorkers about this attack on immigrant communities and why it is so critical that people take to the streets and demand justice.
