For our latest podcast we interviewed Avivia Chomsky, Professor of History and Coordinator of Latin American Studies at Salem State University. We discussed the history of DACA and the effect that rescinding this policy will have on 800,000 DACA holders, and 10 million undocumented immigrants.

Her most recent book is is Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal (Beacon Press, 2014) and her writings can be found on the Nation, Tom Dispatch, and much more.
