“In light of the ICE raids on immigrant communities and the discussion about immigration reform, I believe it is in our best interest to platform a frank discussion about prostitution and immigration from a labor, human, and civil
rights perspective as a means to bring awareness to how the criminalization of immigration and prostitution laws are being conflated and used as a means to practice institutionalized xenophobia and sexism with a particular focus
towards a shame-based, sex-negative stereotyping.” -Maxine Doogan, Erotic Service Providers Union
