Rebecca Hamlin is interviewed on Connecting Point

Rebecca E. Hamlin, political science, is interviewed on Connecting Point about efforts by some politicians and immigrant advocates to defund the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Hamlin says the agency was created in response to the 9/11 attacks but the federal government has had such an enforcement arm for much of its history. She says the recent reporting on deportations and splitting up families has drawn attention to the agency. (WGBY-TV 57, 7/23/18)
