The Criminalization Of The Immigration System: The Dehumanizing Impact Of Calling A Person "Illegal", Ashley R. Shapiro 2018 University of Richmond

The Criminalization Of The Immigration System: The Dehumanizing Impact Of Calling A Person "Illegal", Ashley R. Shapiro

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

In the context of immigration, words matter. The increasingly used term “criminal alien” is not only used as an adjective to define a noncitizen who has committed a crime, but it also acts as a descrip- tion of his or her personhood. The use of the term “illegals,” which is the shortened version of “illegal alien,” is pervasive in the media as well as policy debate. In Part I, this paper discusses the evolution of the immigration system in the United States from a discretionary and humanitarian system to a criminalized process. In Part II, this paper examines the convergence ...

Five Steps To A Better U: Improving The Crime-Fighting Visa, Jason A. Cade, Meghan L. Flanagan 2018 University of Richmond

Five Steps To A Better U: Improving The Crime-Fighting Visa, Jason A. Cade, Meghan L. Flanagan

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Congress created the U nonimmigrant status to assist noncitizen vic- tims of serious crime and to encourage them to assist law enforce- ment in the investigation of that crime. Despite these laudable goals, the process has been flawed since the outset. U visas were capped at 10,000 per year, eventually precipitating a multi-year backlog that diminishes the incentive to report crime for persons who fear depor- tation. Of particular importance, the willingness of law enforcement officers to provide a certification of helpfulness—a mandatory com- ponent of an application for U status—varies tremendously across agencies. Eligibility for U ...


The Unanswered Conundrum: Inconclusive Record And The Burden Of Proof For Immigration Relief, Yanie Yuan 2018 University of Richmond

The Unanswered Conundrum: Inconclusive Record And The Burden Of Proof For Immigration Relief, Yanie Yuan

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

In 2017, the Ninth Circuit Court of the United States decided a case of an undocumented noncitizen that went against United States Su- preme Court precedent. The appellant in Marinelarena v. Sessions was removed despite the fact that she had not been convicted of any crimes. This comment examines the arguments and strategies of the case that the judges relied upon in their opinion.

Who Gets In? The Price Of Acceptance In Canada, Chavon A. Niles 2018 University of Toronto

Who Gets In? The Price Of Acceptance In Canada, Chavon A. Niles

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

The Canadian nation state is often applauded for its open and welcoming attitude towards Others. The Prime Minister of Canada has openly stated that “Diversity is our strength.” However, who gets in suggests who and what Canada values. Through the stories of Jazmine, Nico and Harold shared by Global News, I will illustrate how Canada continues to discriminate against people with disabilities. Using critical disability studies and critical race theory, I explore the assumptions the “excessive demand,” point system, and medical exam make in labelling and disregarding disabled applicants who are read as undesirable and unworthy. Finally, I reflect on ...


Foreign Born Latina Earnings And Returns To Education And Experience In The United States, Trevor Mattos 2018 University of Massachusetts Boston

Foreign Born Latina Earnings And Returns To Education And Experience In The United States, Trevor Mattos

Gastón Institute Publications

The determinants of immigrant earnings have long been a heavily researched topic, beginning with the contributions of Chiswick (1978) and Borjas (1985). The majority of this work focuses on male immigrants. Prior findings provide conflicting results with respect to determinants of native and foreign-born earnings in the U.S. This study, however, focuses on the earnings levels and differential returns to education and experience between native and foreign-born Latina workers in the U.S. using pooled American Community Survey microdata from 2014, 2015, and 2016. The analytical approach borrows from Chiswick’s 1978 paper that utilized cross-sectional regression methods and ...

Rendition In Extraordinary Times, Margaret L. Satterthwaite, Alexandra M. Zetes 2018 NYU School of Law

Rendition In Extraordinary Times, Margaret L. Satterthwaite, Alexandra M. Zetes

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

The practice of rendition—the involuntary transfer of an individual across borders without recourse to extradition or deportation proceedings—is not new. Indeed, the practice of snatching a defendant for trial—“rendition to justice”—has been used by governments for more than a century. Although rendition has been controversial in human rights circles, it has been celebrated by many as crucial in the fight against impunity for grave crimes. Former U.S. President George W. Bush was criticized for the “novel” practice of “extraordinary rendition”—the transfer of suspects to locations known for the systematic use of torture, including secret ...

On Moral Grounds: Denouncing The Board's Framework For Identifying Crimes Of Moral Turpitude, Frank George 2018 The University of Akron

On Moral Grounds: Denouncing The Board's Framework For Identifying Crimes Of Moral Turpitude, Frank George

Akron Law Review

Though admissibility and deportability decisions often hinge on whether a noncitizen has committed a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT), the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) neither defines “moral turpitude” nor establishes a framework with which to apply this language. As a result, courts have historically developed inconsistent applications of the act’s moral turpitude provisions. This Article explores the creation, collapse, and recreation of a uniform framework for the identification of CIMTs. After several circuit courts refused to give deference to the previous framework, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) appropriately came to the following conclusion: the language of the ...


Sanctuary Campuses: To Be Or Not To Be, That Is The Question, Renei Caballes 2018 Golden Gate University School of Law

Sanctuary Campuses: To Be Or Not To Be, That Is The Question, Renei Caballes

GGU Law Review Blog

In addition to cities affirming their status as sanctuaries to undocumented immigrants, college campuses have also pressured their administrations to declare their campuses sanctuaries in order to combat the President’s attacks on the undocumented members of their student bodies. Despite this pressure, many campuses are reluctant to definitively state whether or not they will be considered a “sanctuary campus” given the potential consequences of such a declaration, namely having their vital federal funding stripped. Further, for institutions that are willing to deem themselves sanctuary campuses, it is unclear just what a sanctuary campus will look like and entail. While ...
