Event: PCLP Speaker Series: Operation Streamline - Spring 2013


Speaker Heather Williams.  Operation Streamline started in 2011 in Arizona to speed up the process of deporting people who have been found at or near the border having just crossed without permission. People who have been arrested for "entering without inspection" go through court in groups rather than singly. In exchange for pleading guilty, the migrants give up their right to a trial, agree to a shorter sentence than they would otherwise receive (up to 6 months as opposed to 2-3 years), and are deported after they serve their time.
