President-elect Donald Trump claims that there are 2 million of what he calls “criminal aliens” in the United States. He has promised to deport them all, establish a zero-tolerance policy for any criminal infractions committed by immigrants, and to triple the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. He has repeatedly promised to build “an impenetrable, physical, tall, power, beautiful southern border wall,” and to get the government of Mexico to pay for it. He’s also threatened to cut off public funding for sanctuary cities, local governments who have adopted policies of noncompliance with federal deportation policies. In the wake of the election, hate crimes have spiked, and many of our nation’s immigrants, documented or not, are rattled. Centro Hispano has provided cultural programs and immigration assistance to Dane County’s Latino population for years. Brian Standing interviews Karen Menendez Coller, Executive Director of Centro Hispano about their ongoing work to strengthen and defend Latino Families in Dane County.
