César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández is a writer and law professor at the University of Denver who focuses on migration policing. In December 2019, he published his second book, Migrating to Prison: America’s Obsession with Locking Up Immigrants, about the United States’ reliance on prisons to enforce immigration law. Kirkus calls Migrating to Prison “a chilling, timely overview of the American tendency to first exploit and then criminalize migrants.”
His analyses frequently appear in leading news sources in the United States and abroad. He has written for The New York Times, The Guardian, Newsweek, Salon, and more. In recent months, he has made appearances on MSNBC, BBC, National Public Radio, CNN Español, Public Radio International, and many other publications.
César publishes crimmigration.com, a blog about the convergence of criminal and immigration law. He has been a Fulbright scholar in Slovenia and is currently a member of the American Bar Association Commission on Immigration. In 2015, he published his first book, Crimmigration Law.
César’s impact has been recognized by the Association of American Law Schools Section on Minority Groups which, in 2014, gave him its Derrick A. Bell, Jr. Award, issued to a professor who “has made an extraordinary contribution to legal education, the legal system or social justice.” In 2019, the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center granted him its Challenging Discrimination Award.
