ABOUT THE IMMIGRANT DEFENSE PROJECT
The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) fights for fairness and justice for all immigrants at the intersection of the systematically unjust criminal and immigration systems. IDP was founded 20 years ago to combat an emerging human rights crisis: the criminalization of immigrants targeted for mass incarceration and exile. As the ICE deportation complex has exploded, we have continued to confront this crisis head-on by developing deep expertise and interventions through a multi-pronged strategy.
Rooted in the principle that no one is disposable, IDP is uniquely positioned to fortify the frontline struggle through community defense, policy reform, legal support and training, impact litigation, and communications and advocacy to fight back against mass criminalization, detention, and deportation.

Los Lobos (pronounced [los ˈloβos], Spanish for “the Wolves”) is an American rock band from East Los Angeles. Their music is influenced by rock and roll, Tex-Mex,country, zydeco, folk, R&B, blues, brown-eyed soul, and traditional music such as cumbia, boleros, and norteños. The band gained international stardom in 1987 when their cover version of Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” topped the charts in the U.S., the UK, and several other countries. In 2015, they were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Read more…
