Migrants, Refugees, and Cages: Understanding America’s Detention Regime
A challenging conversation about how the U.S. treated refugees and immigrants in the Trump era.
Focusing on a range of issues from bureaucratic hurdles to cages, Prof. David Hernández analyzes the US detention system, particularly as it intersects with Latinx immigration. And Prof. Marlene Ramos lays bare the political economy of immigration imprisonment, with its disproportionate impact on people of color. Chaired by Prof. Marion Kaplan.
