Immigration: Criminalization of Immigrants From Clinton to Trump

With recent attention on Alameda County Sheriff’s collaboration with ICE, host Mitch Jeserich interviews Aviva Chomsky, professor of History at Salem State University and author of “Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal” to examine national immigration policy from the Clinton presidency to the present.

The second segment focuses on criminalization of immigrants at the local level with Isaac Ontiveros, member of Oakland Sin Fronteras and Stop Urban Shield Coalition, co-director of the Center for Political Education, and facilitator in May Day mobilizations, and Sandy Valenciano, Statewide Coordinator California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance and part of ACUDIR coalition.
