"A Choice to Destroy Lives"

20 minutes

We are kicking off April with a new season of Immigrantly. You probably noticed, we took a small hiatus in recognition that so much is happening around us and like you, we needed time to adjust, root down, and grapple with what this nation and the globe is experiencing. I think everyone is feeling a mixed bag of emotions. Some are anxious, fearful even. Others are exhausted physically and emotionally. And there are those who are hopeful, hopeful that this is a reset button, a forced acknowledgment of what has escaped our gratitude. In all, it’s a weird time and a weird way of being. Life at the moment contradicts the robotic, hectic schedule we have turned to and normalized as productivity. To those New Yorkers still in the city, I am with you. I am learning how to be present with myself and inside my home as we let the health professionals lead the charge against this pandemic. That being said, COVID 19 isn’t the only news percolating. And we can’t let these other stories go unnoticed.    Today’s episode will be on DACA and the urgent details surrounding its Supreme Court case. We will explore the program’s recent past, its current status, and its future prognosis. Of course, with any lesson of the historical sort, we need primary voices! So scattered in this episode are audio snippets of brave DACA students who hope that sharing their experience will garner awareness and mobilize communities into action.
