Course Continuity
Students are encouraged to stay home if you are ill or experience flu-like symptoms. If you miss a class for any reason, it is still your responsibility to make up the work missed.

I offer the following to students who miss class due to illness:

- If you are absent, due to illness or some other unavoidable circumstance, email me and I can ask for volunteers among your classmates to share their notes with you.

- I will make PowerPoint slides or other class materials routinely available on the course site to everyone in the class.

As deportations have increased at staggering rates, record numbers of people face removal as a consequence of contact with the criminal justice system. This seminar explores the intersection of criminal and immigration law and its impact on noncitizens. Topics include the immigration consequences of criminal convictions, the treatment of noncitizens in criminal courts, and the racialization of (im)migrants in criminal and immigration enforcement. Through an active, engaged approach, students gain a deeper understanding of the application of federal immigration law to crimes as well as constitutional protections for noncitizens targeted by the criminal justice system. Policy discussions include the evolution of criminal justice as a form of migration control, the implications of heightened cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities, and the impact of the crimmigration system on communities of color.
