This week, Roqayah and Kumars are joined by immigration attorney and returning guest Sophia Gurulé, policy counsel and staff attorney with the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project at the Bronx Defenders, a public defender nonprofit in New York City. Sophia was also involved in the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project in Dilley, Texas where she helped provide legal services to asylum-seeking women and children and advocated for an end to family detention.

Sophia sheds light on the Biden administration’s mass deportation of Haitian refugees and how right-wing judges anointed by the Federalist Society are keeping the most draconian Trump policies in place. The gang also picks up where Sophia’s last interview left off, discussing Biden’s immigration plan and its shortcomings, Bill Clinton’s immigration legacy and the history of the prison-to-deportation pipeline, and why movements for climate justice, workers’ rights and prison-industrial complex abolition can’t shy away from the demand to abolish borders.

You can follow Sophia on Twitter @s_phia_ and find out more about the work of organizations like Haitian Bridge Alliance, Grassroots Leadership and Black Alliance for Just Immigration.
