Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Iván Espinoza-Madrigal, Executive Director of Lawyers for Civil Rights, Boston.
When Donald Trump occupied the White House, he fixated on the U.S.-Mexico border and drummed up anti-immigrant hysteria to fund a border wall. Now, pieces of that unfinished wall remain standing, cutting off border communities from one another. Meanwhile, refugees, whose conditions have barely improved after Trump’s election loss, remain in unsafe and inhumane conditions, as per the findings of a new report by the group Lawyers for Civil Rights based on a border visit in October.
