Title: Warehousing the Poor: How Federal Prosecution Initiatives like “Operation Streamline” Hurt Immigrants, Drive Mass Incarceration and Damage U.S. Communities

Issue Paper 82
Abstract: Startlingly absent from most discussions of immigration reform, the Obama administration’s Operation Streamline is a mass prosecution initiative currently underway along the U.S.-Mexico border. In this issue of DifferenTakes, Arizona-based immigration rights researchers and activists Geoffrey Boyce and Sarah Launius expose how Operation Streamline is blurring the line between the U.S. criminal justice and civil immigration systems, violating basic rights, and criminalizing immigrants.
