In the second episode of Periphery, Angelika Albaladejo and I interviewed Jose Magaña-Salgado, an attorney and policy advocate at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) in Washington DC. We talked with Jose about the overcriminalization of immigrants in the United States.
I’ve written a fair amount about US immigration policies and practices on this blog in the past. Also, as Jose mentions in the episode, immigration issues are often related to foreign policy issues, some of which Angelika and I touched on in our conversation with Sarah Kinosian in our first episode on the humanitarian crisis brewing in Honduras.
