Alondra is an undocumented immigrant living around Rio Grande, Texas. She also has breast cancer. It has been a struggle for Alondra to get the care she needs near where she lives, and immigration checkpoints make it impossible for her to travel to the cities where she could get the treatment she needs. Why do we allow a broken immigration system to essentially condemn people like Alondra to death?
Alondra spoke with America Ferrara on this week’s episode of America Divided, a new documentary series from Epix. Ferrara joins Jesse Williams, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler, Shonda Rhimes, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Norman Lear, Peter Sarsgaard, and Common to examine our country’s crisis of inequality each Friday at 9 pm EST.
