  Immigration -- Practice and Policy Fall 2006 Symposium George Mason University School of Law Civil Rights Law Journal October 18, 2006 17 George Mason University Civil Rights Law Journal 545 (Spring 2007) One of the Civil Rights Law Journal's goals is to bring attention to current civil rights topics and contribute to the legal community's discussion of these important issues. The Civil Rights Law Journal chose immigration as this year's Symposium topic because it has burgeoned into one of the most important national policy debates that cross-cuts... 2007
Kevin R. Johnson Immigration "Disaggregation" and the Mainstreaming of Immigration Law 68 Florida Law Review Forum 38 (2016) Immigration scholars have written volumes on a remarkable outlier of modern American constitutional law. Originally created by the Supreme Court in the nineteenth century to uphold the now-discredited laws excluding Chinese immigrants from American shores, the plenary power doctrine continues to immunize the substantive provisions of the U.S.... 2016
John Medeiros Immigration after Doma: How Equal Is Marriage Equality? 35 Hamline Journal of Public Law and Policy 197 (Fall, 2013) Under current immigration law, there are four primary avenues to lawful permanent residence: family reunification, employment-based immigration, asylum/refugee admission, and diversity based on country of origin. Of these four avenues, family reunification remains a top priority of our country's legal immigration system. This priority is evidenced... 2013
Catherine Norris Immigration and Abduction: the Relevance of U.s. Immigration Status to Defenses under the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction 98 California Law Review 159 (February, 2010) In our increasingly mobile world, family relationships and problems often span national borders. These transborder entanglements pose challenges both for individuals and legal regimes. In the late 1970s, as a result of growing awareness of the phenomenon of child abduction by a parent, nations sought to address this issue through the creation of... 2010
Lucas Guttentag Immigration and American Values: Some Initial Steps for a New Administration 35-FALL Human Rights 10 (Fall, 2008) The treacherous debate over immigration was remarkably muted during the presidential campaign. But the system's failures are unchanged, and the need for reform more urgent than ever. Today's dysfunction has multiple causes exacerbated by three seismic developments over the last twelve years. First, enormous changes to the immigration statute... 2008

Kevin R. Johnson Immigration and Civil Rights: Is the "New" Birmingham the Same as the "Old" Birmingham? 21 William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal 367 (December, 2012) Over the past few years, state legislatures have passed immigration enforcement laws at breakneck speed. As one commentator characterized it: Immigration law is undergoing an unprecedented upheaval. The states . . . have taken immigration matters into their own hands. In response to the widespread perception that the federal government cannot or... 2012

Gerald L. Neuman Immigration and Judicial Review in the Federal Republic of Germany 23 New York University Journal of International Law & Politics 35 (Fall, 1990) In recent years, scholars have repeatedly questioned prevailing American constitutional doctrines concerning immigration and the rights of aliens, stressing the anomalous character of these doctrines within modern American constitutional practice. This anomaly arises on two levels: the plane of constitutional principle and the plane of judical... 1990
Lupe S. Salinas Immigration and Language Rights: the Evolution of Private Racist Attitudes into American Public Law and Policy 7 Nevada Law Journal 895 (Summer 2007) American history is replete with narrow-minded reactions to speaking languages other than English. The early settlers spoke primarily English; however, many colonists who arrived later spoke other European languages. Regardless, the new settlements inevitably became English-speaking communities. Their numbers and traditions dictated this result.... 2007

Lasch Immigration and Naturalization 52 The Year in Review (ABA) 337 (2018) Our immigration law update for 2017 is particularly practical and controversial, given that it comes on the heels of a number of international crises as well as the inauguration of the Trump Administration, both of which dramatically affect immigration law. We begin with a look at the ongoing refugee crisis from Central America and U.S. actions to... 2018
David W. Austin, Qiang Bjornbak, Josh D. Friedman Immigration and Naturalization Law 45 International Lawyer 329 (Spring, 2011) One of the top ten domestic news stories of 2010 was Arizona's attempts to deal with immigration and lawsuits that followed the passage of S.B. 1070. Although S.B. 1070 is a local measure, it epitomized the tension that underlies local attempts to enforce and influence federal immigration policy. The conflict between state and national approaches... 2011
Michael Blake Immigration and Political Equality 45 San Diego Law Review 963 (November/December 2008) The act of immigration alters several forms of human relationship simultaneously. It represents a change in physical location and so alters the relationship between persons represented by geographic concepts such as territory and property. In immigrating, immigrants acquire a new place in the world that they may understand, in some sense of the... 2008
Karla M. McKanders IMMIGRATION AND RACIAL JUSTICE: ENFORCING THE BORDERS OF BLACKNESS 37 Georgia State University Law Review 1139 (Summer, 2021) Black immigrants are invisible at the intersection of their race and immigration status. Until recently, conversations on border security, unlawful immigration, and national security obscured racially motivated laws seeking to halt the blackening and browning of America. This Article engages with the impact of immigration enforcement at the... 2021
Theresa Alfaro-Velcamp, Robert H. McLaughlin Immigration and Techniques of Governance in Mexico and the United States: Recalibrating National Narratives Through Comparative Immigration Histories 29 Law and History Review 573 (May, 2011) There is need of a broader treatment of American history, to supplement the purely nationalistic presentation to which we are accustomed. Immigration histories typically endeavor to describe and hold a nation-state accountable not only for the laws and policies by which it admits some immigrants, but also for those by which it refuses, excludes, or... 2011
Ediberto Roman Immigration and the Allure of Inclusion 35 Seton Hall Law Review 1349 (2005) The legal predicament of Victor Navorski is a classic tale of a man without a country and is unfortunately replete with metaphors for the plight of immigrants to this land. Navorski's saga begins when he is detained at the border of the United States, which in his case is at one of New York City's airports. He is legally unable to leave his port of... 2005

George A. Martínez Immigration and the Meaning of United States Citizenship: Whiteness and Assimilation 46 Washburn Law Journal 335 (Winter 2007) At the outset of the twenty-first century, United States immigration policy has become one of the most pressing issues of our time.

Leila Higgins Immigration and the Vulnerable Worker: We Built this Country on Cheap Labor 3 American University Labor & Employment Law Forum 522 (2013) In early 2012, the Department of Labor took an unexpected step in support of immigrant workers, changing the way H-2B visas are issued to make it harder both to hire and to exploit immigrant workers. The changes in regulation were the result of years of hard work by advocates for both Union workers, and immigrants. However, by the end of the summer... 2013

Michael T. Light , Isabel Anadon Immigration and Violent Crime: Triangulating Findings Across Diverse Studies 103 Marquette Law Review 939 (Spring, 2020) The dramatic increase in both lawful and unauthorized immigration in recent decades produced a groundswell of research on two questions: (1) Does immigration increase violent crime? and (2) What policy responses are most effective at addressing unauthorized immigration (e.g., sanctuary policies, deportations, etc.)? For the most part, these bodies... 2020
Hiroshi Motomura Immigration and We the People after September 11 66 Albany Law Review 413 (2003) Immigration and citizenship issues are part of a larger discussion about how America should respond to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. At the same time, how America should respond to terrorism is part of a larger discussion of immigration and citizenship issues. Both of these discussions are part of an ongoing conversation about... 2003
Jill Keblawi Immigration Arrests by Local Police: Inherent Authority or Inherently Preempted? 53 Catholic University Law Review 817 (Spring, 2004) As a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush's Administration has used immigration policy as its primary weapon in terrorist prevention. Because there are only two thousand federal immigration agents and an estimated eight million undocumented immigrants, this Administration has encouraged the nation's... 2004

Matthew J. Lindsay Immigration as Invasion: Sovereignty, Security, and the Origins of the Federal Immigration Power 45 Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review Rev. 1 (Winter 2010) This Article offers a new interpretation of the modern federal immigration power. At the end of the nineteenth century, the Supreme Court and Congress fundamentally transformed the federal government's authority to regulate immigration, from a species of commercial regulation firmly grounded in Congress's commerce authority, into a power that was... 2010
Rick Su Immigration as Urban Policy 38 Fordham Urban Law Journal 363 (November, 2010) Immigration has done more to shape the physical and social landscape of many of America's largest cities than almost any other economic or cultural force. Indeed, immigration is so central to urban development in the United States that it is a wonder why immigration is not explicitly discussed as an aspect of urban policy. Yet in the national... 2010
Peter H. Schuck Immigration at the Turn of the New Century 33 Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law L. 1 (Winter, 2001) Migration is perhaps the most insistent world phenomenon of our age. The propensity to migrate in search of a better life has always been among the most powerful of human drives, and perhaps never more than today. Migration theorists attempting to explain population movements often distinguish between so-called push and pull factors. Before the... 2001
David S. Rubenstein Immigration Blame 87 Fordham Law Review 125 (October, 2018) This Article provides the first comprehensive study of blame in the U.S. immigration system. Beyond blaming migrants, we blame politicians, bureaucrats, and judges. Meanwhile, these players routinely blame each other, all while trying to avoid being blamed. As modeled here, these dynamics of immigration blame have catalyzing effects on the... 2018
Manuel D. Vargas Immigration Consequences of Guilty Pleas or Convictions 30 New York University Review of Law and Social Change 701 (2006) The immigration consequences of a guilty plea or conviction in a New York court have increased dramatically in recent years. This is because in recent years the U.S. Congress has several times amended the federal immigration laws--in particular in 1996 when it enacted the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA) and the Illegal... 2006
Kate Evans Immigration Detainers, Local Discretion, and State Law's Historical Constraints 84 Brooklyn Law Review 1085 (Summer, 2019) The Trump administration assumed office armed with promises to eradicate unlawful immigration through an all-out assault. There would be no exceptions; everyone was a priority. The administration equated migrants with criminals in statement after statement. President Obama's [f]elons not families became a rallying cry for the Trump administration... 2019

César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández Immigration Detention as Punishment 61 UCLA Law Review 1346 (June, 2014) Courts and commentators have long assumed, without significant analysis, that immigration detention is a form of civil confinement merely because the immigration proceedings of which it is part are deemed civil. This Article challenges that deeply held assumption. It harnesses the U.S. Supreme Court's instruction that detention's civil or penal... 2014
Elizabeth Hannah IMMIGRATION DETENTION IS NEVER "PRESUMPTIVELY REASONABLE": STRENGTHENING PROTECTIONS FOR IMMIGRANTS WITH FINAL REMOVAL ORDERS 65 Arizona Law Review 505 (Summer, 2023) Immigration detention is a central feature of the United States' immigration system. Noncitizens facing removal are detained in staggering numbers throughout the removal process, from the initiation of legal proceedings to the issuance of a final removal order. Moreover, as the U.S. government's reliance upon immigration detention has grown, the... 2023
Jennifer J. Lee IMMIGRATION DISOBEDIENCE 111 California Law Review 71 (February, 2023) The immigration system operates through the looming threat of the arrest, detention, and removal of immigrants from the United States. Indiscriminate immigrant arrests result in family separation. Immigrants languish in carceral facilities for months or even years. For most undocumented immigrants, there is no available pathway to citizenship. To... 2023
Daniel Kanstroom Immigration Enforcement and State Post-conviction Adjudications: Towards Nuanced Preemption and True Dialogical Federalism 70 University of Miami Law Review 489 (Winter, 2016) The relationship between federal immigration enforcement and state criminal, post-conviction law exemplifies certain inevitable complexities of preemption and federalism. Because neither perfect uniformity nor complete preemption is possible, we must consider two questions: First, whether (and, if so, how) state courts adjudicating rights should... 2016
Sameer M. Ashar Immigration Enforcement and Subordination: the Consequences of Racial Profiling after September 11 34 Connecticut Law Review 1185 (Summer, 2002) I appreciate the opportunity offered by this Symposium to reflect on the questions raised by immigration enforcement activities undertaken since the September 11 attacks. Like many others in New York and elsewhere, the shock of the collapse of the World Trade Center towers caused me to lose sensation in some part of myself. The spate of hate crime... 2002

Pratheepan Gulasekaram IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT PREEMPTION 84 Ohio State Law Journal 535 (2023) The Supreme Court's 2012 decision, Arizona v.

Notably, the Court did not limit preemption inquiries to conflicts between the state law and congressional statutes. The Court... 2023
