New White Paper: Migration, Race & Criminalization: Federal Criminal Entry & Reentry Laws in the United States
On March 7, 2023, a coalition of organizations working on issues related to racism and human mobility in the Americas presented testimony at a hearing before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (“IACHR”).
A report detailing the findings presented during the hearing was submitted to the IACHR in June 2023.
Last week, the Center for Immigration Law and Policy (“CILP”) at the UCLA School of Law released a new white paper detailing coalition's findings of the racial animus behind the the criminalization of border crossing in the United States. The paper outlines how the modern law violates Inter-American human rights jurisprudence. Finally, the white paper argues that the entry and reentry laws should be proactively addressed by IACHR.
