As an Activist Anthropology student at the University of Texas Cato studies the Travis County Sheriff’s Department. His research includes ride alongs and jail visits, focus groups with officers and immigrants, and individual interviews. He shared some unanticipated findings and moving stories with Deportation Nation.
Excellent interviews with some surprising findings:
--Travis County Sheriff's Deputies don't understand how Secure Communities works and the consequences that an arrest can have for an undocumented person.
--The poignant story of a young person who worked as a volunteer with the Sheriff's Dept. who was deported because of Secure Communities.
