The tragic shooting that took place in El Paso Texas this month was not an isolated incident. It is a tragedy that recalls the racism, xenophobia, and paranoia more than a century ago. On this episode, the LMC speaks with David Dorado Romo about the legacy of the 1917 Bath Riots and how it lends itself to help us understand the racism and xenophobia we see in today’s political landscape. David Dorado Romo is the author of, “Ringside Seat To A Revolution: An Underground Cultural History of El Paso And Juarez.”
The LMC continues its Undocumented and LGBTQ series by speaking with freelance journalist and news production fellow for Democracy Now, Maria Ines Taracena about the marginalized group within the marginalized group. The caravan within the caravan.
For too long, the immigration debate has been centered exclusively on the Latino community in the US. At the same time, millions of Southeast Asians have been left out of the conversation. So the LMC speaks with Kham Moua on the struggle for Southeast Asian immigrant rights and the importance of Asian/Latino unity against racism & xenophobia. Kham Moua is the Immigration Policy Advocate for the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC).
