Meet Juan Crow
At least 66 people are known to have died in immigration detention in 2007. Today, as the US House holds hearings, our panelists journalist Roberto Lovato, Janvieve Williams of US Human Rights Network and Maria Muentes of Families for Freedom discuss the health and treatment of those in U.S. detainment. Are immigration laws the new Jim Crow? Discuss.
