Carrie Rosenbaum What (And Whom) State Marijuana Reformers Forgot: Crimmigration Law and Noncitizens 9 DePaul Journal for Social Justice Just. 1 (Summer, 2016) Deportation rates of Latino/a noncitizens are higher than their presence in immigrant communities in the United States. The fact that Latino/a noncitizens experience immigration policing and deportation at higher rates than other noncitizens is due, at least in part, to federal immigration enforcement's use of alleged criminality to identify... 2016

Angélica Cházaro Beyond Respectability: Dismantling the Harms of "Illegality" 52 Harvard Journal on Legislation 355 (Summer 2015) Current pro-immigrant reform efforts focus on legalization.

Peter Margulies Deferred Action and the Bounds of Agency Discretion: Reconciling Policy and Legality in Immigration Enforcement 55 Washburn Law Journal 143 (Fall 2015) Although agencies rightly have discretion in interpreting statutes, that discretion does not extend to unraveling carefully crafted legislative compromises.

Cade Enforcing Immigration Equity 84 Fordham Law Review 661 (November, 2015) Congressional amendments to the immigration code in the 1990s significantly broadened grounds for removal while nearly eradicating opportunities for discretionary relief.
