NCG Big Players in Congressional Hearing on Deportations

With his mom behind bars for having a deportation order, 21 year-old Bryan Rivera spoke with “the voice of hundreds of kids being affected by immigration laws,” alongside Bishop Joseph Pepe and other religious leaders of Nevadans for the Common Good.

Testimony from ‘Nevadans for the Common Good’ detailed how the failure to address a broken system is tearing apart families, harming children and weakening communities in Southern Nevada, thus highlighting how policy implementation at the local level is ultimately dehumanizing people.
