“As an intern at Derechos Humanos, on one of my first days, Cristen and Rachel trained me to work on the “Missing Migrant Project”. They give other interns and me a list of about 30 detention centers and asked that we call to attempt to locate people that went missing after crossing the border. This exercise quickly turned everything I was reading about at the Border Studies Program into reality. I began to see more concretely how the system turns people into numbers and how big businesses such as Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) profit from this modern form of slavery. I constantly see human rights being violated and the list of missing migrants increasing in our database. Although I wish this project didn’t exist, I’m fortunate to have learned about this reality, a reality that I’d like to take part in changing.” – Prachi Goyal
