On October 9, 2015 U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera visited the set of Democracy Now! for an interview with host Amy Goodman. He read poems from his new book with City Lights, Notes on the Assemblage and spoke at length about immigration, the Chicano movement in the United States, Ayotzinapa, and much more.
