Come see the telling exposé on Tucson’s very own “Operation Streamline” as told by Dan Rather! Providing an up-close-and-personal look at the little-known practice of incarcerating 70 immigrants each day prior to their deportation, this one-hour documentary style journalism is a must-see. Dan Rather Reports explores the economic, political, and human rights implications of criminalizing tens of thousands of immigrants.
Following the viewing of the Dan Rather Reports episode on Operation Streamline, there will be a panel to discuss and answer questions about Operation Streamline, and its place in possible immigration legislation that is currently before the US House of Representatives. As immigration legislation is poised to further turn the southern border into a militarized zone, this is an important opportunity to learn about a small but crucial piece of the impacts of that militarization.
The event is hosted by the American Friends Service Committee, Arizona. For more information call (520) 623-9141.
