Katherine Figueroa

Katherine Figueroa, now 15 years old, was nine years old when she watched her parents arrested by Arpaio in a workplace raid on TV. She was the first person to draw national attention to a deportation case, through organizing children's marches and giving testimony in front of Congress about how Arpaio affects families. She starred in the documentary Two Americans, sharing her story as a powerful counterpoint to Arpaio's reign of terror in Maricopa County.
