The One-Year Asylum Deadline And The Bia: No Protection, No Process, Penn State Law Immigrants' Rights Cliinic, Human Rights First, National Immigrant Justice Center

The right to seek asylum from persecution is a fundamental and long-recognized human right. The United States committed to protecting refugees in 1967 when it signed the Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees and later enacted legislation to incorporate the Protocol’s key provisions into domestic law. Despite these commitments, in 1996 Congress enacted a filing deadline for asylum applications which has resulted in potentially denying protections to thousands of legitimate refugees.

Medellin, The President's Foreign Affairs Power And Domestic Law, A. Mark Weisburd May 2010

Medellin, The President's Foreign Affairs Power And Domestic Law, A. Mark Weisburd

Penn State International Law Review

In this article, Professor Weisburd explores the implications of Medellin v. Texas for the President's authority to affect domestic law through reliance on his authority to conduct the foreign affairs of the United States. He argues that the Court was correct to reject arguments that, on the facts of the case, the President could look to a delegation of authority from Congress or from the Senate as treaty-maker, or that President could treat the matter as resting on his power to settle claims against foreign governments, or that the President's obligation to "take care that the laws be ...

Human Trafficking From An International Protection Perspective: Probing The Meaning Of Anti-Trafficking Measures For The Protection Of Trafficking Victims, With Special Regard To The United Kingdom, Hannah Simon

Penn State International Law Review

The Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (ECAT) entered into force in the U.K. on the 1 April 2009. This event led to the belief that Britain's adherence will considerably improve the protection of trafficking victims in the country. In light of such expectations, this study examines which implications anti-trafficking measures may have on the legal protection of trafficking victims, while concentrating on new legal developments in the U.K. The paper analyses first the response of the anti-trafficking framework to international protection needs, and second, considers the scope of an alternative protection ...

Reading The Morton Memo Federal Priorities And Prosecutorial Discretion, Shoba Wadhia

Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia

On June 30, 2010, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), John Morton, issued a memo to the agency that reflected the Obama administration’s oft repeated intent to focus removal efforts on serious offenders. Morton noted: In light of the large number of administrative violations the agency is charged with addressing and the limited enforcement resources the agency has available, ICE must prioritize the use of its enforcement personnel, detention space, and removal resources to ensure that the removals the agency does conduct promote the agency's highest enforcement priorities, namely national security, public safety, and ...
