For The Dreamers, Mariajose Gomez 2016 Loyola Marymount University

For The Dreamers, Mariajose Gomez

First-Gen Voices: Creative and Critical Narratives on the First-Generation College Experience

"For the Dreamers" reflects the author's experience on a De Colores immersion trip to Casa de Migrantes in Mexico, Tijuana. This was Gomez's first time traveling out of the country, and the experience helped her realize that no human being should be considered “illegal” simply because of man-made barriers. The piece exposes the complex social dynamics that inform the experiences of both immigrants and citizens of the United States. The purpose of the poem is to challenge readers' views on immigration and highlight the role social constructs and stereotypes play in establishing preconceived ideas about immigrants. The author ...


Policing Sex, Policing Immigrants: What Crimmigration's Past Can Tell Us About Its Present And Its Future, Rachel E. Rosenbloom 2016 Northeastern University

Policing Sex, Policing Immigrants: What Crimmigration's Past Can Tell Us About Its Present And Its Future, Rachel E. Rosenbloom

Rachel E. Rosenbloom

The flow of information from local police to federal immigration officials forms a central element of the contemporary phenomenon known as “crimmigration” — the convergence of immigration enforcement and criminal law enforcement. This Essay provides the first historical account of the early roots of this information flow and a new perspective on its contemporary significance. Previous scholarship locates crimmigration’s origins in the 1980s and ’90s. Drawing on extensive archival research on day-to-day interactions between local police and federal immigration officials, this Essay explores a lost chapter in the development of crimmigration: the pipeline that brought men arrested by vice squads ...


Is Modern Day Slavery A Private Act Or A Public System Of Oppression?, Maria L. Ontiveros 2016 Seattle University School of Law

Is Modern Day Slavery A Private Act Or A Public System Of Oppression?, Maria L. Ontiveros

Seattle University Law Review

The government focuses on trafficking as the definitive form of modern day slavery. In doing so, it portrays modern day slavery as a private act with identifiable wrongdoers and views the Thirteenth Amendment through the lens of forced labor. Workers’ advocates, on the other hand, portray modern day slavery as a systemic form of oppression, supported by governmental policies on immigration and occupational exclusions. These groups focus on the Thirteenth Amendment through the lens of class. A historical analysis suggests that the proper approach views the Thirteenth Amendment through the lens of both class and labor.

Matter Of A-R-C-G- And Domestic Violence Asylum: A Glimmer Of Hope Amidst A Continuing Need For Reform, Caroline McGee 2016 University of Miami Law School

Matter Of A-R-C-G- And Domestic Violence Asylum: A Glimmer Of Hope Amidst A Continuing Need For Reform, Caroline Mcgee

University of Miami Law Review

In August 2014, the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) issued its first published decision recognizing domestic violence as a basis for asylum. In Matter of A-R-C-G-, the BIA held that a woman who had suffered horrific abuse at the hands of her husband in her native Guatemala qualified for asylum as a member of a particular social group. The landmark decision came after years of uncertainty regarding the viability of domestic violence asylum claims and fourteen years after the BIA had rejected domestic violence as a basis for asylum in Matter of R-A-. Parts I and II of this Comment ...


L.E. V. Greece: Human Trafficking And The Scope Of States' Positive Obligations Under The Echr, Vladislava Stoyanova 2016 Lund University

L.E. V. Greece: Human Trafficking And The Scope Of States' Positive Obligations Under The Echr, Vladislava Stoyanova

Vladislava Stoyanova

In L.E. v. Greece, the European Court of Human Rights found that Greece failed to fulfill its positive obligations under art.4 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The judgment can be assessed as a step forward for alleviating the scarcity of judicial engagement with art.4 of the ECHR (the right not to be subjected to slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking). While overall a positive development, in this note I will argue that in some respects the judgment is under inclusive, while in others it is over inclusive. I will demonstrate that the Court ...


The Juarez Wives Club: Gendered Citizenship And Us Immigration Law, Ruth Gomberg-Munoz 2016 Loyola University Chicago

The Juarez Wives Club: Gendered Citizenship And Us Immigration Law, Ruth Gomberg-Munoz

Ruth Gomberg-Munoz

When US citizens sponsor their undocumented
spouses for lawful status, they find themselves at
the center of immigration petitions. They are
invasively scrutinized, treated with bureaucratic
indifference, and separated from their loved ones.
As this “politics of exception,” which often targets
migrants, is unleashed on US citizens, they learn
that their citizenship offers little protection from
dehumanizing treatment. Instead, restrictive
immigration criteria, designed in theory to boost
the value of US citizenship, in practice dehumanize
US citizens and can alienate them from feelings of
national belonging. This contradiction inevitably
emerges when shared lives disrupt the boundaries of
citizenship status, illuminating ...
