César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández
University of Denver law professor and immigration lawyer César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández, who also runs a blog, Crimmigation.com, is here with his new book, Migrating to Prison: America’s Obsession with Locking Up Immigrants (The New Press).
“Migrating to Prison rips the veils off of the immigration detention system. García Hernández brings a sharp legal eye to showing how our immigration system has become so twisted that we take for granted the outrageous. If you want a crystal clear explanation of why we need to abolish immigration detention, this is the book for you.” —Aviva Chomsky.
“Required reading for anyone fighting for a new immigration policy vision that welcomes immigrants. We need to understand the sadistic, multibillion-dollar industry of immigrant detention so that we can rip it down and make sure it never comes back.”—Cristina Jiménez.
