Understanding Immigrant Protective Policies in Criminal Justice

Essay - Online Edition - Volume 95

Professor Jain responds to Professor Eagly’s recent article by situating Professor Eagly’s discussion of “immigrant protective policies” in the context of recent federal efforts to regulate “sanctuary” jurisdictions.  Professor Jain argues for the need to unpack the motivations that guide law enforcement officials in responding to collateral consequences.  The response also considers the implications of Eagly’s analysis in light of a broader blurring of the boundaries of civil and criminal law.
