The Case For Abolition
de Natascha Elena Uhlmann
Sobre o livro
An impassioned argument by a young Mexican American woman for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Abuses in detention centers. Detention of handicapped children. The silencing of activists. Each week, another attack on immigrant rights comes to light.
Its going to be hard to say we didnt know.
ICE has escalated a campaign that tears apart families and ruins lives. But this didnt begin, and wont end, with Donald Trump in the White House. The Obama administration deported record numbers of immigrants, wildly expanded the scope and capacities of ICE, and supported detention center quotas. Voting Democrat alone wont save these children.
Immigration does not take place in a vacuum; each time the United States pushes through another exploitative trade deal or wreaks havoc on sovereign countries, we perpetuate migration flows fueled not by opportunity but by desperation. How long will we continue funding an agency premised upon the abuse and dehumanization of undocumented immigrants?
We need to abolish ICE. This concise, accessible book sets out the reasons why and the way it can be brought about.
