Immigration from a youth perspective

April 14, 2008

A new video by Sally Kohn at the Movement Vision Lab features the story of Juan, a bright and confident young man recently graduated from high school who fears he will soon be deported because he came to the United States when he was six years old. At two and a half minutes, Juan's interview highlights a U.S. immigration policy that lacks humanity and deprives bright and talented immigrants from fulfilling their dreams.

Watch the interview to hear Juan’s All-American story and read an essay Sally has written about immigration and the politics of fear. As she said, "Fear is used to distract us while the real problems only grow." Then, sign the pledge to support fair and just immigration reform.
