Easel 67: Locked Up: Demore, Mandatory Detention, and the Fifth Amendment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Will discuss my work-in-progress Note breaking down a current split among the federal circuit courts regarding the application of a statute mandating detention for certain criminal non-citizens pending deportation proceedings. There are questions about the constitutionality of the statute, which has led to the present split. My Note also delves into the history of Congress' plenary power over regulating immigration, as evidenced through a history of Supreme Court decisions on the subject.
