Trump has been attacking immigrant communities since his first days in office and shows no sign of slowing down. His cruel elimination of DACA, a program that protects nearly 1 million young people, is only the latest of Trump’s many despicable acts. More than 5 million children are at risk of losing a parent to deportation. Millions more could lose other loved ones – siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, best friends. This is why Brave New Film has created a new series of short films told from a child’s point of view on immigration – “Divided by Deportation”.
Filmmaker Robert Greenwald interviews actor and activist Martin Sheen about a film they made together about Andres Magaña Ortiz, a man who was deported from the US in July despite his years in the country as a successful father, community leader, and employer.
Gov. Jerry Brown has publicly committed to protecting Californians from the Trump agenda. Now it is time for our governor to prove his words were not just platitudes and to endorse and promise to sign real laws that can make a real difference. Instead, he is hemming and hawing, raising concerns that have little do with reality and, disturbingly, sound Trumpian.
In Trump’s immigration crackdown, nobody is safe – not parents, not children, not even members of the clergy.
