CA Prisons Collaborate with Deportations; Plus, Funding Behind ‘Pregnancy Crisis Centers’

A new report from the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California shows that California prisons systematically profile and report suspected immigrants to ICE. The ACLU, along with community organizations, has systematically sifted through more than 2,500 public records that shed light on the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s discriminatory, proactive deportation program. We’re joined by the lead author of that report, Sana Singh, who is an Immigrants’ Rights Fellow at the ACLU of Northern California, where she works to defend the rights of immigrants and advocate for immigration policies that treat all people with dignity. We’re also joined by Hien Nguyen, a programming organizer with the Asian Prisoner Support Committee, who focuses her work on in-prison programming, mainly with people who have immigration and ICE statuses. The Asian Prisoner Support Committee is one of the community-based organizations involved in the Profile, Tag, Deport report.

Then, we look at the massive amount grift and funding going to so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that could amount to $1 billion each year. We speak with Garnet Henderson, a reporter for Rewire News, the only national publication exclusively dedicated to reporting on reproductive and sexual health, rights, and justice.

Then, our Resistance in Residence Artist this week is Oakland comedian Jerry Law.
