Immigrants for Sale

by hari on May 20, 2011

If you know my work, you’ve seen me discuss the racism directed towards Mexican people in this clip from Live at Gotham or the ignorant support of Arizona’s immigration bill SB 1070 at the end ofthis clip from my Comedy Central Presents special.

However, the issues are much bigger than just racism targeted at specific groups and discriminatory state laws. Our immigration system is built to dehumanize immigrants and make profits for corporations. I don’t think anything illustrates this more than the private immigrant detention centers that exist around the country and that most Americans know very little about. Please watch this video entitled “Immigrants for Sale” and share it with others:
