The U.S. detains around 400,000 immigrants per year, and immigration detention is increasing. On any given day, there are at least 30,000 people being held in immigration detention. Who are these detainees? Which immigrants are at risk for detention? Where are detention centers located? What is immigration detention like, and how might immigrants get out of detention? Join us for a discussion of  the who, what, when, where and how of immigration detention. The speakers are Jeremy Jong, LaSalle Lead Attorney, Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative/Southern Poverty Law Center; Rachel Nagger, Remote Bond Project Attorney, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC), and Jennie Guilfoyle, Education and Training Attorney, Immigration Justice Campaign of the American Immigration Council and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
