For our project, Aaron and I covered the issue of undocumented immigrants. Philadelphia is a sanctuary city meaning that Philadelphia will not prosecute someone for violating federal immigrations law in the country they are currently living in. What Aaron and I wanted to do was get the spotlight of undocumented immigrants and those who are very close to the issue and hear what they have to say. We interviewed two people: Ricardo Calderon, Director of the Philadelphia Youth Commission and Mrs. Guadet, an undocumented immigrant.
Our goal for our project was to remind people of Philadelphia and the country that undocumented immigrants are humans too. These are people who are trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. We wanted to let people know and show that we advocate for undocumented immigrants should not have to live in fear.
