I am a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at Duke University. My research interests are in the areas of race and ethnicity, immigration, and crimmigration (criminalization of immigration policy and procedure). My dissertation highlights how federal immigration enforcement programs are implemented through local law enforcement in the new immigrant destination of North Carolina. I’m especially interested in how these policies and procedures relate to issues of criminal justice accountability, transparency and reform.
