Homies Unidos Founder, Alex Sanchez on How Trump Used Salvadoran Gangs As A Scapegoat

Today on Flashpoints, we feature an interview with the founder of the organization Homies Unidos, Alex Sanchez,  who addresses the issue of Salvadoran gangs and how they have been held up as a symbol by the Trump administration to justify the criminalization of migrants and asylum seekers coming to the United States. Then we speak with Karina Moreno from the Latino Studies Association conference in Washington DC where academics and activists are sharing views and strategizing issues such as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and immigrant family separations. Last we cover a recent attempt to gut a strong Net Neutrality bill in the California legislature and the surprise outcome that actually pushed back against corporate influence over policy in the State.
