ITT Sound Off: Back to Normal

Maria and Julio unpack the tough week of news from the United States surpassing a half million COVID-19 deaths to the Biden administrations' bombing of Syria. They also talk about the continued detention of migrant children, and Maria and Julio call for a radical reimagining of immigration. Finally they recap this past week's confirmation hearings for the Biden administration. ITT Staff Picks: - "While making a broad change such as eliminating privatized immigration detention will take time, Congress can begin by banning immigration detention policies that incarcerate innocent people and switch to community-based alternatives," write Monica Reyes and Katherine Randall in this Latino Rebels OpEd.  - ITT All-Star Jenni Monet writes about the historic confirmation hearing for Interior Secretary nominee Rep. Deb Haaland in her latest for Indigenously. Make sure to subscribe to Jenni's *free* newsletter as this Friday's will include a special update about Rep. Haaland's hearings and what it means for Pueblo women raised under unique, ancestral patriarchy.  - Britni de la Cretaz reports in them about the House passing of the landmark LGBTQ+ civil rights bill, the Equality Act.  Credit: (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
