American Jews Target ICE Saying #NeverAgain



GUEST: Samantha Fine, lead organizer of a recent protest in Los Angeles organized by Never Again Action.

BACKGROUND: A number of Jewish Americans were recently arrested for participating in a protest at the offices of GEO Group, a private corporation that operates detention centers for immigrants. The action was organized by the group Never Again Action which posted its reasoning on Twitter saying, "We have to block your entrance because @GEOGroup runs concentration camps, and when six million of our family members died we swore we wouldn't let that happen again to anyone."

Thousands of Jewish Americans have organized and participated in dozens of such protests around the US as part of Never Again Action calling attention to the Trump administration's family separation policies, appalling conditions at detention centers, and most recently the ICE raids in Mississippi.
