“That is focusing on people who find themselves caught in a damaged system the place there ought to be a pathway to citizenship. And once more, in a neighborhood like mine, if rumors begin occurring about raids — let alone if it really begins taking place, it instantly makes the neighborhood much less protected. It makes folks much less prone to take part within the economic system, much less prone to speak to legislation enforcement after they need assistance coping with one thing that actually is a matter of hazard.”
