Arrested on Her 22nd Birthday. She Didn’t Know She Was Undocumented.

Episode 1013

Today, we get to meet Azul Uribe. Azul lived most of her life in the US as a devout Mormon, doing her best to get by in a sea of Whiteness. She even made jokes at her own expense about being undocumented. That all changed when she was arrested at age 22 under bizarre and very unlucky circumstances. She was put in ICE detention. Treated terribly. Strip searched multiple times. She then found out those jokes… weren’t. Despite being a college student, Azul faced deportation from the only home she’d ever known.

Join us as we hear Azul’s fascinating and heartbreaking story, in all its raw humanity. And we learn more about our immigration system, and its raw inhumanity.
