Immigrant Crackdown Follows Crime and Drug Wars

New Policy Report Linking Immigrant Crackdown and Wars on Crime and Drugs

By Tom Barry

Immigrant Crackdown Joins Failed Wars on Crime and Drugs is a timely policy report from the Center for International Policy and its Americas Program that examines the deepening connections between immigration enforcement, the criminal justice system, and the drug war. CIP policy analyst Tom Barry writes: “The United States has reacted to the immigration issue chiefly with the "get tough" strategies employed in the crime and drug wars for so long, for so much money, with so little result, and with so much tragedy.” The report urges the Obama administration to reconsider the punitive response to the immigration crisis, just as it would do well to declare an end to the crime and drug wars that are now so closely linked.
