Colorado and 13th St, AUSTIN Texas
Attorney J. J. Mulligan Sepúlveda (No Human is Illegal) and El Paso professor Jeremy Slack (Deported to Death) share on-the-ground perspectives of what happens when people cross into America from Mexico and what happens when they’re sent back. Sepúlveda’s work representing immigrants in court, as well as his identity as the son and husband of Spanish-speaking immigrants, and Slack’s research into the experiences of deportees “returned” often hundreds of miles from their homes, offer personal and important insight into the impact of border enforcement.
