Making Contact - The Penalty is Exile: How Immigration and Criminalization Collide

Under President Obama more than 1 million people have been deported from the United States. We're told many of those people are criminals who’ve broken more than just immigration law.  On this edition, producer Cory Fischer-Hoffman takes a closer look at how immigration and the criminal justice system work together, to detain and deport hundreds of thousands of people every year.


Alex Alvarez, deported immigrant; Abraham Paolos, Families For Freedom director; Tanya Golash Boza, author “Immigration Nation: Raids, Detentions, and Deportations in Post 9-11 America”, John Morton, Immigration and Customs Enforcement director; Michelle Fei, Immigrant Defense Project co-director; Lili Salmeron, Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights organizer.
