On Monday, March 30, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Saxbe Auditorium, a panel of distinguished legal experts will engage in a roundtable discussion concerning “The Continuities Between Immigrant Detention and Mass Incarceration.”

Featured guests on the panel will include Michelle Alexander, associate professor of law at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law; César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández, visiting assistant professor at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and associate professor at Capital University Law School; and Silky Shah, co-director of the Detention Watch Network.
