According to Maria Zamudio’s cover story in the latest issue of The Chicago Reporter, The U.S. government is deporting immigrants to Mexican cities full of violence. That’s leaving deportees vulnerable to theft, extortion and kidnapping. The Chicago Reporter’s Maria Zamudio joined us at the shop to share the story behind her report, along with Cindy Agustin, an organizer at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights. We were also joined by Jorge Hidalgo, a Consul from the Protection Department.
