#6 sojourners

Posted on June 16, 2012


I support Sojourners, an outfit based at Riverside Church that plans visits to the Elizabeth Detention Center and finds housing for asylum seekers in NYC.  The image is from an article on the lobbying practices of Corrections Corporation of America, which manages the Elizabeth Detention Center… it’s an enlightening read.  To learn more about the nexus of federal funding, asylum and human mobility to the US, take a gander at this press release from the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) pertaining to deportation and an article by Suketu Mehta in the New Yorker about the business of asylum.
