Protesters demand the release of Iraqi nationals picked up in immigration raids in 2017. Vice President Mike Pence met with Chaldean leaders this week to talk about the deportation of Iraqi Chaldeans under the Trump administration.

Today on Stateside, we talk to a leader in Michigan's Chaldean community about his meeting with Vice President Mike Pence about the future for detained and deported Iraqi Christians. Plus, a conversation about why so many mentally ill people in Michigan end up in jail, and what we can do about it.
