Prisoners of Profit?
A Panel Discussion on the Ugly Reality of Georgia's Private Immigrant Detention Prisons
Thursday, October 18th | 12:30-1:20 pm | Room TBA
Lunch will be served
The ACLU of Georgia recently released the results of their 3-year investigation into Georgia's immigrant detention facilities-- “Prisoners of Profit: Immigrants and Detention in Georgia.” After interviewing 68 detainees and their family members and attorneys, reviewing ICE documents, and touring the detention facilities, the ACLU found evidence of due process violations, inadequate living conditions, inadequate medical and mental health care, and abuse of power by prison authorities.
As law students at our state's flagship university, we cannot turn a blind eye to the injustice in our own backyard. Join us as we explore the findings of this report and discuss its consequences. A panel of distinguished experts will engage us in a deep exploration of the state of immigration detention in Georgia:
Azadeh Shahshahani-- National Security/Immigrants' Rights Project Director of the ACLU of Georgia and President of the National Lawyers Guild
Dale Schwartz-- UGA Law Alum, distinguished immigration law professor, and lead counsel on several cases challenging states' new harsh immigration laws
Jose Hernandez-- former immigration detainee
The panel will be moderated by Professor Dennis.
Date: Saturday, September 29th
Location: Serenity Church
