President Obama deported three million immigrants. Did he bother to find out what happened to them? Professor Jeremy Slack’s new book, “Deported to Death” tackles the question Where do undocumented workers go when I.C.E. deports them? Do they run? Do they hide? Do they live? I.C.E. is shipping millions of immigrants out of America, often back to certain death.
ICE belongs in the Arctic Circle not America. Why I.C.E.’s detention centers are UnAmerican, and why exactly anyone employed by I.C.E. is a mortal threat to our democratic institutions.
