The Case of Immigration Activist Ravi Ragbir
Back in February, Maria and Julio sat down with immigration activist Ravi Ragbir, who had endured what a federal judge called an "unnecessarily cruel" detainment and was threatened with a scheduled deportation. Since then, Ravi has been granted a stay from a New Jersey judge. But earlier this month, he was back in court in New York, fighting to be granted a second stay in hopes of preventing his new scheduled deportation date, September 7, 2018. With the recent updates to Ravi's case, In The Thick brings a special rebroadcast of Maria and Julio's conversation with Ravi and Donna Lieberman, Executive Director of the NYCLU.
