Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center

Making Crime and Criminals: Incarceration and Citizenship on the Arizona-Sonoran Border

Join the Latino Cultural Center and the Institute for Research on Race & Public Policy for an interactive discussion with Patrisia Macías-Rojas about border security mandates; including tracking criminal “aliens” merged with the mission of deterring “illegal” immigration. This talk will examine how migrants in transit, deportees, and border residents resist and reify criminal classifications in their daily experiences with arrest, incarceration, and deportation.

Professor Macías-Rojas is the 2012 visiting scholar at the Institute for Research on Race & Public Policy. Her work investigates the convergence of immigration and criminal law within U.S.-Mexico border enforcement. She is a native of Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.

If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.
