The Undocumented Poet

A fellow UCLA DREAMer joins our special screening of Nostalgia for the Light this Thursday.
Matias Ramos, social media coordinator here at IPS, went public with his undocumented immigrant status to support the DREAM Act as an undocumented student. He has now been fitted with electronic ankle monitor and told he has to leave the country in early October. This is an example of the Obama Administration's failure to close low-priority deportation cases. Hear from him on a conference call tomorrow, 11:30 AM EST.
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senate Majority Whip, spoke about the IPS Executive Excess report during a floor speech about how corporate accountability can help the U.S. overcome the current economic crisis.
