In Flint, Michigan, undocumented residents say they have been blocked from accessing free bottled water and filters as Flint’s drinking water remains poisoned with lead. The water poisoning began when the unelected, state-appointed emergency manager of Flint switched the source of the city’s drinking water to the highly corrosive Flint River. The National Guard has been mobilized to distribute water, but some officials have required residents to show identification. Undocumented people in Michigan are barred from receiving driver’s licenses or state IDs. The National Guard has also been going door to door distributing water, but many undocumented immigrants are afraid to open the door, for fear of deportation.
