Richard Delgado Reforming Capitalism Through Law and Regulation 47 John Marshall Law Review 1269 (Summer, 2014) Reflecting on a number of recent books on social reform through law, it struck me how many of them exhibit a common structure. The books lay out in the first half how poorly a certain sector, such as corporate finance, immigration, or civil rights, has been performing under certain criteria, usually justice or efficiency. They then argue for... 2014

Ishita Chakrabarty Refoulement as a Corollary of Hate: Private Actors and International Refugee Law 61 Virginia Journal of International Law Online 51 (2020) While researchers in the field of refugee studies have set out to influence the policy decisions of host states, the reverse situation, where a host state's policy decisions have shifted refugee movements, has been little discussed.

Shana Tabak REFUGEE DETENTION AS CONSTRUCTIVE REFOULEMENT 48 Yale Journal of International Law 289 (Summer, 2023) The most fundamental obligation that states owe to refugees under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees is the commitment of non-refoulement. This commitment to not force back a refugee to a country where she may face serious harm to her life or liberty demands that states interrogate whether their treatment of... 2023
Malissia Lennox Refugees, Racism, and Reparations: a Critique of the United States' Haitian Immigration Policy 45 Stanford Law Review 687 (February, 1993) We are asking why you treat us this way. Is it because we are Negroes? Why are you letting us suffer this way, America? Don't you have a father's heart? Haven't you thought we were humans, that we had a heart to suffer with and a soul that could be wounded? Give us back our freedom. Why among all the nations that emigrate to the United States have... 1993

Zachary S. Price Reliance on Nonenforcement 58 William and Mary Law Review 937 (February, 2017) Can regulated parties ever rely on official assurances that the law will not apply to them?

Michael Scaperlanda Religious Freedom in the Face of Harsh State and Local Immigration Laws 15 Tulsa Journal of Comparative & International Law 165 (Spring 2008) In recent years, the issue of illegal immigration has taken center stage on the American political scene.

Angela Stoltzfus REMAIN IN MEXICO: THE MIGRANT PROTECTION PROTOCOLS' FAILURE TO PROTECT 95 Temple Law Review Online 1 (2023) Only days before the 2018 midterm election, President Donald Trump called immigrants, or asylum seekers, fleeing violence an invasion. It was not unusual for Trump to use this type of pejorative language--Trump had publicly used demeaning terms such as predator and killer to refer to immigrants at the southern border not once or twice, but... 2023
Clayton P. Gillette REMOTE WORK AND CITY DECLINE: LESSONS FROM THE GARMENT DISTRICT 15 Journal of Legal Analysis 201 (2023) The dramatic rise of remote work threatens the traditional source of urban growth--the unique ability of dense cities to provide a setting in which firms and employees share productive resources, match needs with skills, and transmit knowledge at low cost.

Christopher N. Lasch Rendition Resistance 92 North Carolina Law Review 149 (December, 2013) With the number of immigrant deportations setting new records, attention has focused largely on states like Arizona and Alabama, which seem to be competing to pass the harshest anti-immigrant state law provisions.

Mariela Olivares Resistance Strategies in the Immigrant Justice Movement 39 Northern Illinois University Law Review Rev. 1 (Fall, 2018) Topics of immigration reform have created deep polarization. To some degree, these political and societal divisions regarding immigrants' place and ability to remain in the United States drove the Republican successes in the 2016 elections and carried Donald Trump to the White House.

Angela M. Banks Respectability & the Quest for Citizenship 83 Brooklyn Law Review Rev. 1 (Fall, 2017) Historically, immigration and citizenship law and policy in the United States has been shaped by the idea that certain immigrant populations present a threat to American society. Such ideas justified the Alien and Sedition Acts, the Chinese Exclusion Act, the enactment of new deportation grounds in 1917, and the adoption of national origin quotas... 2017

Peter L. Markowitz RETHINKING IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT 73 Florida Law Review 1033 (September, 2021) As the nation turns the page away from the dark chapter of President Trump's relentless assault on immigrants, it is time to take stock of the nation's unprecedented immigration enforcement regime.

Rachel Bloomekatz Rethinking Immigration Status Discrimination and Exploitation in the Low-wage Workplace 54 UCLA Law Review 1963 (August, 2007) Popular discourse in the U.S. immigration debate often simply asserts that immigrants take jobs that native workers do not want.
