Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

While Washington debates a grand immigration resolution, some activists are putting their bodies on the line to free those in detention today. Aura Bogado reports from Florida's Broward Transitional Center, which currently confines approximately 600 men and 100 women in immigrant detention--and illustrates what's truly at stake in the nation's immigration battle.

All best,
Peter Rothberg, The Nation

The Terror Factory:
A Conversation with Trevor Aaronson and Betsy Reed

Wednesday, February 6, 6:30pm

Is the FBI catching terrorists--or creating them? That's the question that award-winning investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson asks in his new book, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI's Manufactured War on Terrorism. The book exposes how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than 15,000 informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the Bureau can then claim it is winning the war on terror. Aaronson will discuss his book with Nation executive editor Betsy Reed as part of the "Brooklyn Voices" series at St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn. All are welcome to this free event.

FEATURED ACTIVIST CAMPAIGN

On February 14, One Billion Rising will seek an enduring end to violence against women.
