Our UFW Foundation member, Maria, has been featured on TIME Magazine where she talks about the cruel reality our immigrant communities face as a result of anti-immigrant policies.
Similar to many families that have been torn apart, Maria’s husband, father of three American born children, had no criminal record, not even a speeding ticket, yet still, he was detained and deported. Maria, is now left alone hoping she does not encounter the same fate as her husband. Maria’s daughters, like many American children, are being taught at a very young age what it is they need to do if mom and dad do not come home.
As a member of the UFW Foundation, Maria has learned about her rights and is empowered to tell her story. Stories like Maria’s are why we continue to do everything we can to protect farm workers and immigrants who contribute so much to our economy.
