"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."
