As Obama delays immigration reform action, Aviva Chomsky joined us Friday to discuss how “illegality” and “undocumentedness” are concepts that were created to exclude and exploit. Read an excerpt from her new book, Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal.
We also spoke with Pablo Alvarado, director of of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. See more immigration coverage on Democracy Now!
