Immigration destination: The road to sanctuary city

A group of Long Beach immigrants pushed their city to adopt sanctuary policies to protect immigrant residents from the Trump administration’s plan to step up deportations.  Their experience was chronicled by VoiceWaves reporters in a short documentary. “We shouldn’t fear the people who are trying to get rid of us because if we fear them then that means they have more control over us.” Watch the video at VoiceWaves.
