    Bio: Fernando Lopez Sanchez

    Fernando Lopez Sanchez knows what it is like to be in an immigration detention center.  Last summer he was turned over to immigration authorities in Phoenix, Arizona after being pulled over, and after he could not present a Driver’s License.  He says that while he was in detention he experienced the psychological abuse that undocumented detainees go through. “They made me feel like a criminal, like I was not worth more than a piece of paper.” He was able to get out of detention after support from the community and organizations like Puente Human Rights Movement.
