In recent years, dozens of counties in North Carolina have
partnered with federal law enforcement in the criminalization of immigration—what many have dubbed “crimmigration.”
Southern border enforcement still monopolizes the national
immigration debate, but immigration enforcement has become common within the United States as well. While Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operations are a major part of American immigration enforcement, Felicia Arriaga, a sociologist and assistant professor in the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs at Baruch College, maintains that ICE relies on an already well-established system—the use of local law enforcement and local governments to identify, incarcerate, and deport undocumented immigrants.
Arriaga will give a talk at 12:15 p.m. Thurs., April 27 • 107 Oechsle Center for Global Education • MORE
