Migrating to Prison: America’s Obsession with Locking Up Immigrants

A must read whether or not you are familiar with the history of immigration law in the US. The author is a law professor originally from the Rio Grande Valley, where his family have an immigration practice. His family's lived experience provides a unique lens. This personal background further informs his abolitionist argument that detention is an indefensible, moneymaking endeavor.
