Episode 3: Detention Expansion
In addition to staffing CBP, the federal government begins to expand immigration detention, with a mandate to add 34,000 beds in 4 years. Join us as we visit several of the Texas detention centers launched during this period. Learn how the Bush administration expanded the detention system, contracting with private companies and allowing profit motives to guide immigration policy. And hear from Cecyll Padilla, who turned himself in only to be detained.
