Immigrants on Hunger Strike Over Conditions As Trump Admin. Plans to Curtail Rules for Detention

14 April 2017 - 1:05pm

In part two of our interview about a hunger strike at the for-profit Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, we speak about their demands with Maru Mora Villalpando, an activist and undocumented immigrant with the group group Mijente; and Alexis Erickson, the partner of a hunger striker, Cristian Lopez. They have three U.S.-born children and she says, "their whole life has been turned upside down" by his detention. Lopez has since been transferred to a jail in New Mexico, where he is continuing the strike as he faces deportation.
