PEP vs. SComm: Still Wandering in the Wild - César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández

July 07, 2015 (1 min read)

"PEP isn’t a panacea for the severity of modern immigration law enforcement. Many migrants will still be sanctioned twice—once by the criminal justice system and a second time by the immigration law regime. Hundreds of thousands will continue to find themselves sucked into the immigration detention and removal pipeline annually.

Lastly, let’s not forget that PEP represents a step toward rationality in large part because DHS’s earlier immigration enforcement practices, including under President Obama, have been so grossly irrational. This is a step in the right direction, but ICE is so far off course that it’s still wandering in the wild." - César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández, July 7, 2015.
