From Politics to Raids, The Modern Day Lynching of Latinos

Juan Cartagena and Maximo Aguiano talk about the history of institutionalized racism in law enforcement and its impact on Latino culture yesterday and today. What impact is the anti-Latino rhetoric having on our community? What do we need and where do we go from here? And how is the millennial generation going to drive this change?
