‘As a US Citizen I Don’t Feel Safe’

Janice Ginger is co-chair of the New Sanctuary Coalition of NYC and works tirelessly with other volunteers to support those individuals under threat of deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

One of those people who has been detained by ICE – once for a year and half and once for a month – is her husband, Ramesh Palaniandi, who came to the U.S. from Guyana when he was 3 and holds a green card. While Palaniandi challenges an aggravated felony charge in court, he remains in the country under a stay of removal.

Ginger spoke about the work the coalition is doing to support Palaniandi and others in an interview with Kate Ryan, a member of the 2017 class of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
