Penn Law Professor Finds "Crimmigration" Disproportionately Impacts Latinos

"The days of widely tolerated prejudice against Latino individuals in the United States have long passed. But in a recent paper, "Perpetuating the Marginalization of Latinos: A Collateral Consequence of the Incorporation of Immigration Law into the Criminal Justice System," University of Pennsylvania Law School Professor Yolanda Vazquez argues that crimmigration – the comingling of criminal and immigration law – has replaced overt discrimination as the modern day apparatus for extending a history of Latino exclusion, discrimination, and marginalization in this country."
