Robert S. Chang Dreaming in Black and White: Racial-sexual Policing in the Birth of a Nation, the Cheat, and Who Killed Vincent Chin? 5 Asian Law Journal 41 (May, 1998) Professor Chang observes that Asians are often perceived as interlopers in the nativistic American family.

Transgressions by those perceived... 1998
Gabriel J. Chin DRED SCOTT AND ASIAN AMERICANS 24 University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law 633 (June, 2022) Chief Justice Taney's 1857 opinion in Dred Scott v. Sandford is justly infamous for its holdings that African Americans could never be citizens, that Congress was powerless to prohibit slavery in the territories, and for its proclamation that persons of African ancestry had no rights which the white man was bound to respect. For all of the... 2022

Kevin R. Johnson Driver's Licenses and Undocumented Immigrants: the Future of Civil Rights Law? 5 Nevada Law Journal 213 (Fall 2004) In the United States, efforts to end racial discrimination have generally been viewed as struggles for basic civil rights.

Board of Education, officially sanctioned school and... 2004
Angélica Cházaro DUE PROCESS DEPORTATIONS 98 New York University Law Review 407 (May, 2023) Should pro-immigrant advocates pursue federally funded counsel for all immigrants facing deportation? For most pro-immigrant advocates and scholars, the answer is self-evident: More lawyers for immigrants would mean more justice for immigrants, and thus, the federal government should fund such lawyers. Moreover, the argument goes, federally funded... 2023
Diana G. Li DUE PROCESS IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS AFTER THURAISSIGIAM 74 Stanford Law Review 793 (April, 2022) Abstract. It is well established that Congress wields plenary power over the admission of noncitizens at the border.

Stephen H. Legomsky E Pluribus Unum: Immigration, Race, and Other Deep Divides 21 Southern Illinois University Law Journal 101 (Fall, 1996) On every United States coin there are engraved the Latin words e pluribus unum.

But e pluribus unum actually means two very... 1996
