A new Christian Science Monitor article cites Justice Strategies’ research on the federal immigration act, 287(g), which may have served as a precursor to the widely denounced Arizona immigration law.

“Democracy on Ice” is an in-depth investigation of the 287(g) program, which deputizes state and local law enforcement agencies to enforce federal immigration laws. Aarti Shahani is quoted in the article as concluding that “the 287(g) program has failed.… It has harmed, not served our public safety.”
