Should we Stay or Should we Go - Latinos during Hurricane Evacuations

Deciding whether to stay or pack up for a hurricane isn‘€™t easy. For undocumented immigrants it can be incredibly risky. Shelters such as the Red Cross can‘€™t promise them amnesty from immigration and customs enforcement and ICE won‘€™t hesitate to deport them at checkpoints. Maureen O‘€™Neill and Gabrielle Stewart met with both documented and undocumented workers about whether to stay or go when a hurricane hits New Orleans. Produced in spring 2013 in conjunction with Politics of Immigration, taught by Professor Casey Love, and the Center for Public Service. 4:47.
