Immigration Issues in the Criminal Context

Our colleague Steve Sady over at the Ninth Circuit Blog has once again written a great resource for criminal defense lawyers — this time concerning immigration-related issues that arise in criminal cases. (Click here for Steve’s discussion). Steve focuses in particular on how to use the Supreme Court’s decision in Leocal to fight the Government’s aggressive and continuing effort to expand the definition of “aggravated felony.” Steve also provides information on and links to immigration-law resources for the criminal defense lawyer.

For those who finds immigration law to be a realm of poorly drafted statutes, incoherent regulations, and unprincipled decisions, Steve’s discussion is well worth a look.
