Can They Break Out of the Script? / by Maria Hinojosa | July 21, 2010

Can They Break Out of the Script?

Sometimes you get stuck: stuck in a way of thinking, stuck in a way of reacting to people around you, stuck in the place where you live. This week on Latino USA we meet two people in Arizona — Irene and Gerardo — who seem, well, stuck. They are each waiting for the tough new immigration law about to go into effect, and they see things from two very different perspectives.

Valeria Fernández from the Feet in Two Worlds project talks to them about life in Arizona in the days before SB 1070 becomes the law.


Then, keep listening as Maria discusses how their stories could hypothetically change and shift with satirist and artist Lalo Alcaraz.
