New radio series from Washington state: Between Worlds / Behind Bars
From the dark days of the Chinese Exclusion Act to post–September 11 crackdowns on undocumented immigrants, immigration detention has a controversial history in both our nation and in the Puget Sound region. “Between Worlds / Behind Bars” is a four–part series exploring immigration detention from its roots in the 1930s at “Seattle’s Ellis Island” in the International District to today’s privately–run Northwest Detention Center on the Tacoma Tideflats.
