Litquake 2020: San Francisco’s 10-Day Literature Festival
When Trump first announced his “Muslim Ban” in January 2017, J.J. Mulligan Sepúlveda was one of the lawyers who protested. His new book No Human Is Illegal: An Attorney on the Front Lines of the Immigration War pulls back the curtain on the ingrained inhumanity found in the immigration reform currently coming to fruition in the United States.
Readers are taken into the often-times merciless courts of New York City and San Francisco, the frightening detention centers on the U.S./Mexico border, and the overburdened offices of legal defense organizations. In conversation with Steven Mayers.
