Tuesday on Radio Provocateur we’ll have three guests from the New Sanctuary Movement, an interfaith network of immigrant families and social justice activsts working to resist and reform the United States’ draconian immigration system.

We’ll speak to Fatoumata, a Senegalese immigrant who’s husband was deported by ICE in 2007. Since then, she has been struggling to raise her six children on her own with little to no contact with her husband. We’ll also hear from Fanta, Fatoumata’s oldest daughter — one of millions of American-born children facing the threat of deportation to a country they consider foreign. Diana Stewart, member of the Community Church of New York, who has been working with Fatoumata and her family via the New Sanctuary Movement also join us.
