Sierra College hosts “American Dreamers” on Wednesday

The Nevada County Campus of Sierra College will host a screening of “American Dreamers” as part of the Sierra College Latino Film Series on Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The film will be hosted by Dr. Reyes Ortega, who will introduce the film and encourage discussion following the screening.

American Dreamers follows the journey of group of five undocumented youth and an ally who risk their freedom by publicly coming out as undocumented and walking 3,000 miles across America’s heartland to organize for immigrant rights.

  1. In related news, while this is going on at the college, a group of extreme right wing zealots has demanded that the county supervisors make this county a “non-sanctuary” county. These racist morons put their twisted politics ahead of the welfare of the rest of the county citizens. These are the same people who were against ‘Heritage 20/20’ years ago, proponents of the ridiculous State of Jefferson, and blind followers of the most disgusting, crooked administration in the history of the country. Do they have any idea how many undocumented immigrants live and work here, especially in the eastern part of the county? Do they even have a clue how much the immigrants contribute to the local economy? No, of course not. They specifically mention Syrians and middle eastern people parroting the paranoia the trump administration is trying to foment. I would be willing to guess they would also support nuking North Korea. These are the same people who will argue that we need more AR 15’s and AK 47’s to protect themselves from those “rag heads” despite the FACT that most mass shootings in America are done by white males. Can these people even think for themselves (see Brian Hamilton’s editorial in the Union this morning)? Any board members who support this mean spirited insanity should be recalled immediately.

    1. Yes, clowns like Todd Juvinall (once a county supervisor, no less) is another local that the real estate agents don’t tell you about! Go figure. lol.

  2. “fish” thinks the Chronicle people do their “coffee run at McDonald’s.” No surprise that he’s based in the Central Valley. Podunk. lol.
