30 Mins: Immigrants' Rights


Meeting Description:
It's a particularly difficult time to be an immigrant anywhere in the country right now, but it's doubly so in Texas. The government locks up asylum seeking families—including children and infants—in dismal, privately run prisons; jackbooted federal agents pound on doors and pick up immigrant children at school bus stops; and everywhere in our border communities, people face the daily of indignities that come with living in a de facto police state complete with checkpoints, humiliating interrogations, and unabashed racial profiling. During the last session, Texas shelled out $800 million it can't afford on a "border surge" that runs roughshod over Texans' civil liberties, and this session they plan to add hundreds of millions more.
