In this episode of #FOTV, Grace hosts a roundtable with a Race and Ethnic Studies graduate student and two undocumented immigrants. They examine lived experiences to see how race and law work together to erase Asian Americans from the undocumented narrative. Complicating and untangling the notion of "legal immigration", they ask the audience members to find local ways to listen to immigrant stories in their own zip codes and act as co-conspirators - more than allies.
