In this interview, Julianna and Jose Luis Granados Ceja discuss the immigration policies in the United States, focusing on the impact of both the Trump and Biden administrations.

They discuss the challenges in dismantling deeply ingrained policies and the need for a more just and humane immigration policy. Jose also highlights the root causes of migration from Central America, criticizing development projects that benefit corporations and suggesting a need to address the complicity of the U.S. in supporting certain governments. The conversation touches on the role of Democratic administrations and the importance of vocal support for humane immigration policies. Finally, they discuss the efforts of migrant activists and organizations working on the ground to provide support and challenge the foundations of the immigration system.
