Crimmigration: Criminal Justice and Immigration in the U.S.

Tuesday, October 24, 2017, 4:30PM - 5:30PM
Location:  Discovery Building, DeLuca Forum

A staff writer at The New Yorker since 2013, Sarah Stillman provides new and compelling perspectives on social injustices, including her current work on the intersection of the criminal justice system, immigration, and deportation. Stillman, who also leads the Global Migration Project at Columbia University, has captured the human face of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, family detention, and asylum-seekers’ expedited removals. She received a 2012 National Magazine Award and a 2012 Hillman Prize for Magazine Journalism for her 2011 story about the poor treatment of foreign workers at U.S. military bases, and her 2013 work on civil asset forfeiture won attention from policymakers across the country. In 2016, she won the MacArthur Foundation "genius" award. Downloadable PDF flyer for posting: http://www.lafollette.wisc.edu/images/news/2017/stillman-flyer-2017.pdf
