LIVE From Connecticut: Immigration
Maria and Julio travel to Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, CT for a live show to discuss the state's immigrant and Latinx communities. Connecticut provides many protections to the over 100,000 undocumented immigrants, but the community still faces discrimination. Our ITT hosts are joined by guests Charles Venator-Santiago, associate professor with the Department of Political Science and El Instituto at University of Connecticut; Kica Matos, director of the Center on Immigration and Justice at the Vera Institute of Justice; and Lucas Codognolla, executive director of Connecticut Students for a Dream.

- The Immigrant Legal Resource Center's report on local authorities engagement with federal immigration enforcement across the country
Thanks to the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut and the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund who made this live show possible.
