Description

How did the U.S. treat refugees and immigrants in the Trump era, 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 in New Jersey county jails, with its disproportionate impact on people of color. Chair: Prof. Marion Kaplan.
