Immigration system lambasted by late night comedy

| Apr 11, 2018 | Immigration |

Immigration courts have recently been criticized and spoofed by a couple late night comedy shows.  The first, by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, featured an in depth, and somewhat disheartening look at the immigration court system.  Oliver provides statistics as well as anecdotal stories about immigrants’ experiences with the court system, while providing some laughs along the way.  The link is below.

The second link is from Saturday Night Live, in a satirical commercial for the Game of Life: DACA edition.  The commercial is funny, but also realistic in the message that the “Game of Life” is harder for someone who cannot easily gain status, and faces deportation to a life they have never known.  Link is below.
