Today’s Tumble: A Day in Immigration Court
As Congress considers immigration reform, there are questions about the rising number of undocumented immigrants held in detention centers. Critics say we should consider alternatives, especially for immigrants who haven’t committed violent crimes. People like Bertha Mejia, a grandmother from El Salvador in detention in California.
Today on Tumblr, the editor of The World’s Global Nation coverage recreates her experience in “A Day in Immigration Court,” where Mejia sees a judge after being detained for lack of documentation in a neighborhood raid in 2011.
