Patricia G. Gittelson Immigration Jurisprudence from the Dark Ages Toward the Light 2 Journal of Legal Advocacy and Practice 51 (2000) In 1996 Congress passed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA). Through this act, Congress attempted to combat illegal immigration, while revamping the asylum process in the United States. Some of the harshest new measures were instituted under the expedited removal system. This system allows the Immigration and... 2002
Kitty Calavita Immigration Law, Race, and Identity 3 Annual Review of Law and Social Science 1 (2007) In an odd manner, the tragic events of September 11th served as a reminder that the United States is a nation of immigrants that has grown more and more diverse since the 1965 amendments to the country's immigration laws. As the nation reeled from the attacks, we regrouped in incredible demonstrations of unity and patriotism. Yet, an ugly side of... 2002
Donald S. Dobkin Race and the Shaping of U.s. Immigration Policy 28 Chicana/o-Latina/o Law Review 19 (2009) Legal academics who call for campaign finance reform--let us call them Reformers--have overlooked the significance of race, and as a result their critiques of constitutional jurisprudence and reform proposals remain woefully incomplete. Studies reveal that people of color comprise approx-imately thirty percent of the nation's population, but... 2002
Moushmi Patil REQUISITE REALIGNMENT: AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, ASIAN AMERICANS, AND THE BLACK--WHITE BINARY 170 University of Pennsylvania Law Review 1625 (June, 2022) One way to determine whether the national or the state governments should have the power over immigration, that is, the ability to regulate the flow of noncitizens into a polity, is to look at the text of the U.S. Constitution, which purports to allocate powers between these entities. Unfortunately, the word immigration appears nowhere in the... 2002
Mariela Olivares The 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act as Antecedent to Contemporary Latina/o/x Migration 37 Chicana/o-Latina/o Law Review 65 (2020) The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 marked a turning point in U.S. history as the first major piece of federal legislation that banned immigrants on the basis of race or nationality. It set the precedent for future restrictions against other Asian immigrants and against Eastern and Southern Europeans in the twentieth century. Andrew Gyory has set out... 2002
Sonia Chen The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996: Another Congressional Hurdle for the Courts 8 Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies 169 (Fall, 2000) The rise of administrative bodies, Justice Robert Jackson wrote, probably has been the most significant legal trend of the last century .. They have become a veritable fourth branch of the Government .. It is easy to see why Justice Jackson's view is widely shared. The great federal regulatory agencies exert significant influence over large... 2002
William R. Tamayo When the "Coloreds" Are Neither Black Nor Citizens: the United States Civil Rights Movement and Global Migration 2 Asian Law Journal 1 (May 1, 1995) When Congress ended the immigration of Chinese laborers in 1882, the Chinese population was over 95% male. While there has been much disagreement about why so few women came, the more fruitful question may be to ask how Chinese women were able to immigrate to the United States at all. Central to their immigration were legal arguments for lawful... 2002
Kevin R. Johnson A Case Study of Color-blindness: the Racially Disparate Impacts of Arizona's S.b. 1070 and the Failure of Comprehensive Immigration Reform 2 UC Irvine Law Review 313 (February, 2012) A number of federal and state policies have had significant impacts on low-income, pregnant immigrant women living in California. This paper focuses on the issue of Public Charge, in conjunction with the 1996 Welfare Reform and the 1996 Immigration Act. I argue that the social contexts that helped garner support for such anti-immigrant... 2001
