The Pay Pedro Back Campaign seeks support in gaining reimbursement for Pedro’s unjust detention and the painful struggle Emily and her son, Logan, endured while fighting for Pedros’ release. Check out the playlist below to learn more about the Guzman's family story as well as opposing viewpoints on immigration reform.
