Today on Your Call: Why are so many people being deported?
On today’s next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the alarming rate of deportations and prospects for immigration reform. Under President Obama, almost two million undocumented immigrants have been deported. Immigrant rights activists are taking part in nationwide demonstrations urging President Obama to stop the deportations? What explains this policy and what’s the status of immigration reform? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
