The Border is Here: Family Separation in Minnesota

Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 11:00am

Most people are not aware that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are active here in Minnesota.  Often arrests happen after dark, but increasingly they are happening as people go about their daily lives.  In 2016-2017, arrests skyrocketed by 67% over the year before. Deportations have increased by 3 times as in the previous year, leaving children bereft of parents.  

Steve Kraemer of Conversations with Friends (CWF) will share anonymous profiles and stories of people in ICE detention with whom they have visited in a classroom setting who have lived and worked in the U.S. for 10, 20 or sometimes even 30 years and who are now facing deportation and ultimately separation from their families and their communities.
