Nicole Ramos, Attorney & Director of Border Rights, Al OTRO LADO and Mar Cardenas Loutzenhiser, member of First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego & co-owner of GaryMar Academy.
“It’s very clear that President Trump and Attorney General Sessions do not understand this section of federal law, under Title 8, Section 1225 of the United States Code. This is not illegal migration. This is the legal process, which allows an asylum seeker to present themselves at a port of entry to an immigration officer, indicate that they have a fear of return, after which time they are to be granted an interview with an asylum officer.”
Mar and her husband’s justice work includes support of Deported Vets, Deported Moms, The Casa del Migrante and Madre Assunta shelters, and the Ollin Calli labor Collective of Maquiladora Workers.
The GaryMar Academy also hosts travelers on UUJM’s UUBorders Justice Journeys to Tijuana; the next trip is July 27-30.
