In recent years, dozens of counties in North Carolina have partnered with federal law enforcement in the criminalization of immigration—what many have dubbed “crimmigration.” Most recently, back in discussion for the third time in four years is NC legislators’ attempt to codify into state law that sheriffs collaborate with ICE, a requirement otherwise voluntary under federal law. Join us for a discussion with Dr. Felicia Arriaga as she discusses her new and timely book Behind Crimmigration: ICE, Law Enforcement, and Resistance in America, alongside Charlotte-based community leaders and organizers Blu Lewis (NC BLOC, Movement for Black Lives, Our Data Bodies) and Stefania Arteaga (Comunidad Colectiva, Carolina Migrant Network).
