Listen now (57 mins) | The lawyer and longtime community organizer talks about her two-year ban from practicing immigration law, how she is responding to it, and her history of border organizing and advocacy in Arizona.
BRAVO - Thanks for that in-depth discussion with Margo.
The Pew Research Center reports that the 1986 immigration law that provided an option for regularization (pathways to citizenship for unauthorized living in the US which was estimated to be 3-5 million at that time) prompted 3.1 million applications and 2.7 million granted (1.1 million for agriculture and 1.6 million for general status). Advocated by President Reagan.
Margo's book is "It's not your fault: The Case for Amending present Nationality Law to make all members of the Tohono O'odham Nation United States Citizens, now and forever" Looks to be out of print, but I'd love to know if anyone finds a copy
This was a great podcast discussion. Keep up the great work reporting from the border.
Gracias Margo por tu gran trabajo ala comunidad de Tucson Arizona
