A Time to Be Bold
Maria is joined by Marcela Hernandez, organizing director with Detention Watch Network, and Mustafa Jumale, co-founder of Black Immigrant Collective, to discuss immigration policy and the intensifying situations in Haiti and Cuba. They unpack the Biden Administration’s immigration proposals, and the ways that anti-Blackness permeates the U.S. immigration system. We also hear from Patrice Lawrence, co-director of the UndocuBlack Network. ITT Staff Picks: - For Teen Vogue, Silky Shah, executive director of Detention Watch Network, shares her organization’s strategies for shutting down ICE facilities in local communities. - Rowaida Abdelaziz, reporter for Huffpost, writes about racism Black immigrants face within the immigration system: “[they] are disproportionately detained, receive higher bond costs, and say they face racist treatment within detention centers.” - Instead of military intervention, Daniel Larison writes that the the U.S. should provide Haiti with humanitarian aid and assist in the investigation of Jovenel Moïse’s assassination.
