NPR Latino USA
Originally uploaded by naden

Bare with me while I toot my own horn for a second. So, last week I got an e-mail from an editor for NPR's Latino USA station. They were preparing to do a series of stories on immigration reform and wanted to use this photo of mine from the protests in Postville, Iowa last summer.

Here's the text that summarized the broadcast:

"After federal immigration reform legislation failed in 2006, many local governments began passing their own laws. New Haven, Connecticut was the first in the country to offer municipal IDs to all its residents regardless of immigration status. But reports of police harassment and racial profiling show that not every one agrees with the premise of a sanctuary city. Reporter Aswini Anburajan profiles a catholic priest arrested while looking into immigrant harassment reports. Also, a new study suggests that home raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents violate some basic legal tenants."

Okay, putting the horn down now. Thanks for indulging me.
