March 13, 2015 - 1:24 pm

Last March, hundreds of detainees at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma performed a hunger strike. It was the first of two more at the Tacoma Northwest detention center and at immigration detention centers in Texas and Alabama. Today we get the update on conditions of the immigration detention center in Tacoma today and on how the latest immigration politics are affecting our immigrant communities in Washington.

KBCS News Director, Sonya Green speaks with Maru Mora Villalpando, Founder of Latino Advocacy and community organizer with Not1More Deportation.
