For the last eight years, including the Trump’s years, the U.S Congress has been increasing appropriations for “Border Protection,” and still every year, on average, over one million undocumented people crossed into this country, getting work and settling down. How and why did this happen? (Hint: Business needed workers) How can the Left work for lifting the threat of deportation and developing a route to citizenship? In part one of a two part interview, Bill Resnick speaks with Larry Kleinman, a cofounder of PCUN, Oregon’s farmworker union, its Secretary Treasurer for over 20 years, who now also works on national immigration policy.
