Near the Rio Grande outside of Taos, New Mexico—the Land of Enchantment

Near the Rio Grande outside of Taos, New Mexico—the Land of Enchantment

This week's blog is in podcast form! It gives a pretty comprehensive view of the work I've been doing here in Santa Fe, immigration issues here in New Mexico, and the current narrative around immigration in the United States.

Earlier this morning, I hopped on the airwaves for the first time with the wonderful Sylvia Johnson (from the Santa Fe Art Institute). 

On The Voice of Santa Fe KVSF 101.5, we discussed:

  • Unmarried women being the most powerful political force in the United States (0:41)
  • How private corporations are running America's federal immigration detention centers (10:22)
  • Our immigrant youth applying for DACA & how they are making American society stronger—and the amazing work of Allegra Love & the Santa Fe Dreamers Project (15:20)
  • The Santa Fe Art Institute Immigration Pop-Up event featuring the work of artists in residence (21:40)

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the podcast!

And the next time I'll be writing you, I will be in Dilley, Texas at the South Texas Detention Center for 2 weeks. You can click here to read more about the work I'll be doing there. More soon from Texas.
