Amy also shared, “Migrant child died after release from detention, attorneys group alleges.”

Amy shared this video talking about the need to protect food workers in Maryland from COVID-19. It features Earl Dotter’s photos and Amy and our many colleagues calling for an Emergency Order.

Del shared the American Immigration Council’s state by state fact sheets on immigration to “challenge misinformation that often dominates the political and public debate around immigration.”
