Jackson School professor and students release groundbreaking report on ICE flights

April 24, 2019

In “Over eight years the government has deported 34,000 people via Boeing Field. King County wants it stopped” a report produced by Jackson School Task Force students and their professor Angelina Godoy, who is also the Helen H. Jackson chair of the UW Center for Human Rights housed in the Jackson School, is featured. The article highlights “King County’s “collaboration” with flights deporting immigrants” and led county Executive Dow Constantine to sign an order on April 23 to eventually ban such flights from using the airport he oversees.

A front-page story in the UW Daily features the efforts made by Godoy and student researchers in creating the report. Godoy was also interviewed by NPR station KUOW on abuses deportees faced during these flights.
