I recently participated in trips to two of the family detention centers currently managed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE): the Artesia Temporary Facility for Adults with Children in New Mexico and the Berks County Residential Center in Pennsylvania.
In this podcast, CLINIC interviews Father Patrick Delahanty, the recently retired Executive Director of the Catholic Conference of Kentucky. Reflecting on his tenure with the Conference, Father Pat shares stories about combating an “Arizona copycat” bill, working to secure housing for resettled refugees, and prospects for a driver’s license bill in Kentucky. He also provides valuable advocacy strategies for building relationships with the media and working with allies.
