Heather Williams, 1st Asst. Federal Public Defender, District of Arizona
Tucson's federal court is one of the busiest in the United States. Each day, judges see many defendants who are not U.S. citizens, many of whom are here without federal government permission. Of those, about 70 a day plead guilty and are sentenced to time served up to 6 months as part of a Border Patrol initiative called Operation Streamline. We'll talk about what these immigrants go through and what that means for all of us. (Introduction by Carolyn Saunders, Reading by Heather Williams, Sermon by Heather Williams)
