Immigration prison isn't the answer -- here's why | César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández | TEDxMileHigh
Every year, with the support of Republicans and Democrats alike, half a million people are locked up in prisons and detention centers while the government decides if they'll be allowed to stay in the United States. How did we get here? Believe it or not, immigration hasn't always worked this way.
Law professor César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández explains how and why we can do better. César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández is a law professor at the University of Denver and the author of two books: Crimmigration Law and Migrating to Prison: America's Obsession with Locking Up Immigrants.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
