According to ACLU legislative counsel Joanne Lin, these deportations have left a “wake of devastation in Latino communities across the nation.” Monterey County leads the nation in the number of deportations of undocumented immigrants without criminal records.
Join two distinguished attorneys for a discussion of the detention conditions of undocumented immigrants and efforts to protect their human rights.
