In cooperation with the Global Hispanic Caucus and the Global Veterans and Military Families Caucus, we will speak with Eunice Hyunhye Cho, a civil rights attorney in Washington, D.C., about current immigrant detention issues in the U.S. Hear about recent developments, updates in immigration legislation, and what voters abroad can do to help as well as stay informed.
Speaker Bio: Eunice Cho's work currently focuses on challenging unconstitutional conditions in U.S. immigration detention facilities and the expansion of immigration detention. She previously litigated cases involving the rights of immigrants in detention, incarcerated people, and students with disabilities. Eunice is currently a staff attorney at the ACLU National Prison Project (but appearing exclusively in her individual capacity), and has worked at the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the National Employment Law Project. She has also authored several reports regarding abuses in immigration detention and immigration court adjudication, including Shadow Prisons: Immigration Detention in the South.
