Carrie F. Cordero, Heidi Li Feldman, Chimène I. Keitner The Law Against Family Separation 51 Columbia Human Rights Law Review 430 (Winter, 2020) The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 rekindled the national debate on the status of non-citizen immigrants in the United States. While the ostensible cause of this debate--a massive atrocity committed by non-U.S. citizens--is new, its substance is not. Over a century ago, two cases involving the constitutional status of Chinese immigrants in... 2003
K. Scott Wong The Opening of the Law in the Pursuit of Asian American History 13 Journal of Gender, Race and Justice 325 (Winter 2010) There is a race so different from our own that we do not permit those belonging to it to become citizens of the United States.

ROMERO United States Immigration Policy: Contract or Human Rights Law? 32 Nova Law Review 309 (Spring, 2008) U.S. immigration law is premised on the fundamental idea that it is permissible, desirable, and necessary to restrict immigration into the United States and to treat borders as a barrier to entry rather than a port of entry.

Anna Williams Shavers Welcome to the Jungle: New Immigrants in the Meatpacking and Poultry Processing Industry 5 Journal of Law, Economics & Policy 31 (Spring, 2009) We tend to think of Chae Chan Ping v. United States and the other Chinese exclusion cases of the late 1800s as a remnant of the racist past of Asian exclusion and segregation in America. However, these cases have had a tenacious grip on American law, and are very much alive and well. In the Chinese exclusion cases the Supreme Court first... 2003
