Special guest, Luz Hernandez, Ph.D. student in Hispanic Linguistics at the U of MN, will join us at our October 23 membership meeting for a presentation of her book, Shattered Dreams: The story of a historic ICE raid in the words of the detainees.

These undocumented workers, instead of being immediately deported, were tried on charges of identity theft and sent to jail for 5 ½ months.
