    Dear Uprising and Sonali:

    Inland Empire immigrant rights groups held a press conference today declaring that they are in solidarity with immigrants. There is news that kids will be released on Friday to church groups. Inland Empire immigrant rights groups are in need of churches or buildings/spaces in San Bernardino, Riverside and Temecula. Help get the word out to your listeners, that spaces and volunteers are needed.

    Inland Empire groups welcome these young immigrants in a humnitarian show of solidarity.

    This is one of your best interviews, Suyapa did a great job putting this crisis into a context. Ian Masters and Peter Schrag should watch this segment.

    Is there a website to contact the Inland Empire groups?
