This edition: Immigration and the labor movement

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 20, 2009.

On this edition of Independent Sources we explore the reasons behind and ramifications of a recent proposal by the two largest union federations to overhaul the US’s immigration policy. We commemorate Earth Day by focusing on a group that fights for environmental justice for a beleaguered Brooklyn community. We see how an El Diario story crossed language lines and helped homeless day laborers find safe haven. Then we profile a news agency targeted toward the ethnic and immigrant media.
