Summary
  • "An in-depth look at the imprisonment of immigrants addressing the intersection of immigration and the criminal justice system"--
  • Over the last thirty years, federal and state governments have increasingly tapped their powers to incarcerate people accused of violating immigration laws. As a result, almost 400,000 people annually now spend some time locked up pending the result of a civil or criminal immigration proceeding. García Hernández takes a hard look at the immigration prison system's origins, how it currently operates, and why. He tackles the emergence of immigration imprisonment in the mid-1980s, with enforcement resources deployed disproportionately against Latinos, and looks at both the outsized presence of private prisons and how those on the political right continue to link immigration imprisonment with national security risks and threats to the rule of law. -- adapted from jacket
