American Gulag: Inside U.S. Immigration Prisons

American Gulag: Inside U.S. Immigration Prisons

Michael Welch, Professor of Criminal Justice at Rutgers University, reviews American Gulag: Inside U.S. Immigration Prisons, by Mark Dow. The book is about the experiences of those detained by U.S. immigration authorities. Public concern is lacking on the racism, classism, mistreatment, sexual abuse, and violation of human rights that occurs in U.S. detention centers. The author also explores the effects of 9/11 and fear of terrorism on the treatment of detainees.
