Book Talk -  Humanizing Immigration: How to Transform Our Racist and Unjust Immigration System

After fifty years of representing noncitizens caught up in the immigration policy and enforcement meat grinder, it’s become clear to Professor Hing that immigration enforcement must end. He has witnessed senseless emotional damage to his clients, their families, and others similarly situated because of racist and inhumane policies. So the need to abolish ICE is a no-brainer. The book is placed correctly within the abolitionist framework.

Professor expresses his frustration and reasoning through six chapters of information—including many personal stories--on: 1) racism in immigration law, 2) detention of children, 3) deportation of aggravated felons, 4) deportation of longtime noncitizen residents, 5) the unfair asylum system, and 6) the broken immigration court system. He ends with an epilogue encouraging disruption.
