Tremaine L. Hemans ’19 article titled “The Intersection of Race, Bond and ‘Crimmigration’ in the United States Immigration Detention System.” was published by the University of the District of Columbia, David A. Clarke School of Law’s Law Review. Citation on LexisNexis is 22 UDC-DCSL L. Rev. 77.

The article touches on the state of Immigration detention centers in today’s political climate and more importantly last years Jennings v. Rodrigues decision by the supreme court will further disparately impact people of color mainly Latinx and Black people. In Jennings, the Court held that detained aliens do not have a right to periodic bond hearings even if they are detained for prolonged periods of time, due to the language of the mandatory and discretionary detention statutes. The article analyzes the interaction of race, mass incarceration through bond denial, and the criminalization of people of color persistent throughout U.S. immigration law in the United States.
