Behind The Scenes With Documented on Latino USA

My thoughts: Through my research, I found Mexican immigrant activists in the 1920s observing court proceedings and challenging judicial rulings they felt were unjust.  Today, a non-profit called Documented is doing similar kind of work in New York City.

Their description: "For our latest episode of Latino USA, we partnered up with Documented, a nonprofit news site that covers immigrants in New York City, to get a behind the scenes look at the experience of trying to navigate the immigration courts as an asylum-seeker under the Trump Administration. Maria Hinojosa sat down with co-founders of Documented, Max Siegelbaum and Mazin Sidahmed, to talk about what they observed in New York's immigration courts, and how federal policy changes have impacted the people moving through them."
