Be the Vote for Immigrant Families Under Threat by Trump Administration

Democracy Now! goes to Florida, which could prove decisive in the 2020 presidential election and where immigration is a key issue for many voters, to speak with Hatian American writer Edwidge Danticat, who says voters in the state should cast their ballots to protect immigrant families under threat of deportation by the Trump administration.

Trump has repeatedly tried to end temporary protected status for Haitians in the country.

DN also speaks with 13-year-old Christina Ponthieux, the U.S.-born daughter of two TPS recipients from Haiti. "Terminating TPS would affect all of us, especially kids like me who are U.S.-born children who have never been to their parents' country before," says Christina, a member of Family Action Network Movement, or FANM, and a co-chair of the group's Children for Family Reunification initiative.
