      "illegal aliens"?*

  * *How has US foreign policy contributed to the problem? *
  * *How are local communities confronting the criminalization of
    immigration polices, and helping recently arrived refugees? *

*Prof. Aviva Chomsky *will provide historical context on the creation of 
the so-called “illegal immigrant” in the US. She will discuss the 
effects of military aid that the US poured into Guatemala, El Salvador 
and Honduras in the 1980s that helped create a violently enforced 
inequality leading to the problems today. Prof. Chomsky is coordinator 
of Latin American studies at Salem State University and author 
of/ Undocumented: How Immigration Become Illegal /(2014).

*Gabriel Camacho*is the Immigration Programs Coordinator for the 
American Friends Service Committee. Locally the AFSC is on the Steering 
Committee of the Massachusetts Trust Act Coalition. With the protracted 
death of "immigration reform" at the federal level, and President 
Obama's repeated delays on executive action, Gabe will speak on 
conditions facing newly arrived refugee families and how local 
communities are confronting these issues.
