A Democracy at Risk

Maria and Julio are joined by two ITT All-Stars — Tina Vasquez, senior reporter at Prism, and LaTosha Brown, co-founder of the organization, Black Voters Matter. They talk about the 2020 election, including presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden's vice presidential pick and the Black and POC candidates winning local primaries across the country. They also dive into the Voting Rights Act and the federal government's continued cruelty toward immigrants. ITT Staff Picks:  - Tina Vasquez reports about Peter Schey, an immigration attorney responsible for representing migrant children, who pushed for protocol that triggered family separation in this piece for Prism. - Errin Haines interviews a dozen strategists, activists and voters — including LaTosha Brown — about the growing calls for a Black woman as vice presidential candidate in this piece for The 19th. - Maria Hinojosa and Miguel Macias report about the long term effects of the August 2019 immigration raids at seven chicken processing plants in central Mississippi via Latino USA.  Photo Credit: AP Photo/Ted S.
