Undocumented immigrants are responding to Trump's crackdown
To get an idea of how undocumented immigrants are responding to President Trump's crackdown, I spoke to Natalia Aristizabal, co-organizing director of New York-based Make the Road, a non-profit organization working with Latino and working-class communities.
"What I've seen from folks is a yearning to fight back," she told me. "Our basic model right now is that we're here to stay and we're not going to go out without a fight."
Arizitzabal noted that resistance is strongest among so-called Dreamers; unauthorized youth who were brought to the US as children, some of whom were granted temporary relief from deportation under President Barack Obama. "Those are the folks I hear even more of a defiant tone of I'm not going anywhere," she said.
