Santa Clara county speaks up for immigrants

Foreign nationals were arrested this week during a targeted enforcement operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at immigration fugitives, re-entrants and at-large criminal aliens.

Santa Clara County is standing up for their immigrant community amid ICE crackdowns across the country.

The county launched a pro-immigrant media campaign Friday to ensure residents are equip with the necessary legal resources and knowledge should the Trump administration’s unruly efforts to expose undocumented immigrants be felt in the Silicon Valley.

Host Michael Finney invited Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian onto the show to provide more details on the campaign and weigh in on the divisive topic as a whole.
