Starting November 15, JCUA Immigration Committee members will be hosting watch parties of the docu-series Immigration Nation. This 6-part series is a deep dive into the immigration system in the United States, including unparalleled access to footage of ICE operations. Each Sunday afternoon we’ll watch one episode together and then have a 30-minute guided discussion. We hope these watch parties will help our community understand and prepare to disrupt the injustices of the American immigration system.

This series takes a deep dive into the immigration system in the United States, including unparalleled access to ICE operations. We hope it can be a powerful tool for our knowledge on the US immigration system and how it intersects with systems of incarceration and criminalization in our country.
