Call for Papers for Presentation
AALS Section on Immigration Law (2018)
Immigration Adjudication in an Era of Mass Deportation
Saturday, January 6, 2018, 1:30 PM – 3:15 PM
The AALS Section on Immigration Law is pleased to announce a call for papers for presentation at the 2018 annual conference in San Diego, CA (January 3-7, 2018). The program will be titled, “Immigration Adjudication in an Era of Mass Deportation.” Large scale deportation has been a feature of the federal government’s immigration enforcement policy for years. But the immigration policies under the new administration suggest even more expansive reliance on the tools associated with mass deportation, such as increasing the number of deportations, the scale of detention and the categories of persons treated as removal priorities. The Section seeks papers that examine the implications of the current Administration’s mass deportation strategies for existing paradigms in the literature on immigration adjudication.
The questions that may be addressed in the papers include, but are not limited to, the following: the rise–and likely expansion–of summary removals and other mechanisms that enable the federal government to effectuate removal in a streamlined manner and without the participation of the immigration courts; the impact of the backlog in the immigration courts on the federal government’s ability to achieve mass deportation; the continued relevance of the immigration courts and Board of Immigration Appeals as the central actors in immigration adjudication; and the influence of policies related to mass deportation on broader themes within immigration law such as judicial review, the rule of law, the constitutional rights of noncitizens, plenary power or the entry fiction doctrine.
Up to two papers may be selected from the Call for Papers. Selected speakers will be notified by the third week of September. The author(s) of the selected paper or papers will be invited to present the paper(s) during the Immigration Section’s program at AALS.
Please send your submission to email@example.com by August 1, August 31, 2017, 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST). On the subject line, please write, “Submission for Immigration Law Section’s Plenary Program, Immigration Adjudication in an Era of Mass Deportation.” Those of you who have already submitted already need not re-send your entries.
Selected speakers will be notified by the third week of September, 2017.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rose Cuison Villazor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
