NYC immigration rights organizer Ravi Ragbir is facing deportation on Saturday. He is just one of several activists around the country who have been detained or deported after publicly fighting to change the system.
Cory Booker and Diane Feinstein questioned the decision to terminate deportation relief for some 250,000 immigrants and DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen’s “amnesia” regarding the president’s “shithole” comments.
There are thousands of cases of alleged abuse at immigrant detention centers—and an FBI investigation into abuse claims at a Texas facility. One advocacy group says detained immigrants must be included in reform efforts.
