Abstract

This senior thesis focuses on the criminalization of undocumented immigrants in Little Village, Chicago. This issue is more commonly known as crimmigration, which is a new kind of law that has recently emerged. I explore the ways in which the criminal system and the immigration system have become dependent on each other. My work seeks to bring light to the criminalization issues Little Village faces. By partnering with organizations within the community, I conducted 35 surveys to analyze the data on how undocumented immigrants are treated by the police or by border patrol. I believe that undocumented immigrants in Little Village, Chicago are going to experience more criminalization or mistreatment by border patrol or police. My end goal is to find out how individuals in Little village have been impacted by crimmigration.
