Immigration lawyer Carolina Rubio-MacWright breaks down the ugly truth of what happens to women who leave horrendous situations, some with their children, seeking refuge in the United States. She teamed up with Mamas Con Poder/Moms Rising to help women in all kinds of situations and show the world that we aren’t just all undocumented, there are amazing Latinas changing the game.
With the immigration campaign, Mamas Con Poder have been focusing heavily on TPS and the DREAM act. And, giving more visibility to detention centers, especially incarcerated women with children. The Women’s Refugee Commission did a very extensive report stating that in within the first 6 months of the Trump administration taking office, there was a 60% increase of women detained. Which means many more women are being denied bonds. It’s causing a lot of trauma and issues. The scariest part: Women and children are being separated now more than ever. But not all is lost. Tune in and see what you can do to help undocumented moms and their kids.
To top it off, Rubio-MacWright will leave you floored on all that she does as an artist. She shares her thoughts on her the universe, intuition and how being open and letting things happen instead of resisting the moment.
