MARC STEINER Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Marc Steiner. Good to have you all with us.
From the moment Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar were attacked for calling and equating the detention centers holding children without any daily sanitary amenities or beds, separated from parents and those who care for them with concentration camps, they were attacked by Republicans, by some Jewish organizations, and some Holocaust survivors. But other Holocaust survivors, Latinx Jews, and other Jewish activists formed Never Again Action and other groups to confront ICE, Trump, and the detention of immigrants living in inhumane conditions.
We’re joined now by Molly Amster, who’s the founding Baltimore Director for Jews United for Justice (JUFJ), which organizes the Jewish community in partnership with other communities in this fight for social and economic justice. And has been working on migrant justice issues for the last several years at the local and state level, and participating in the Never Again actions that are happening across the country over the last few weeks. And Molly, welcome. Good to have you with us.
MOLLY AMSTER Thank you. Good to be here.
