ABC’s Diane Sawyer Puts a Face to Victims of SB1070

By Jorge Rivas Jul 29, 2010

Yesterday, in a segment titled "The Conversation: My Undocumented Life" ABC’s Diane Sawyer interviewed a young woman named Erika, an undocumented Arizona resident who has been in the U.S. since age 11. Sawyer produced a beautiful short interview where she put a face to those being affected by the harsh policies going in to affect today in Arizona. It’s important to note Erika is identified as an "undocumented resident" and Sawyer never uses the term "illegal" and really develops a compelling narrative that illustrates the "collateral damage" of SB1070.
