ACS New York: “Migrating to Prison” with César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández
Join the ACS New York Lawyer Chapter and the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute for a discussion between Cristian Farias and Professor César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández on the latter’s new book, Migrating to Prison: America’s Obsession with Locking Up Immigrants.
In Migrating to Prison, César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández, the U.S.-born child of Mexican immigrants who was raised in the Texas border city of McAllen and is a frequent visitor to immigration prisons, takes a hard look at the immigration prison system’s origins, how it currently operates, why the system has evolved this way, and why we as a nation must change this practice.
