#006: Undocumented immigrants and activist-attorneys Liz Mateo & Luis Angel in the new Trump era
Lizbeth Mateo and Luis Angel were both born in Mexico and brought to the US by their parents as children. They hustled like crazy in school, getting through college by washing dishes, working in a deli and grinding nonstop. They both also made it a point to keep going and pursued law school. Luis received his JD from NYU and Lizbeth hers from Santa Clara Law. To make these stories even more ridiculous, they were also both very actively involved in and leading the undocumented immigrant movement - pushing for the DREAM act and mobilizing to stop all the raids and deportations. They both put it on the line on many occasions. These two are special, and this episode is special. Please listen and share it with your friends and family. These are stories that need to be heard and this episode contains practical information that the community needs to know and be aware of given the potential impact of president-elect Trump's impending actions.
