Immigration Law, Policy and Constitutional Rights (20547). 3 units. This survey course will provide a foundation in the basics of the immigration law system, the policy choices it reflects, and the constitutional principles governing the regulation and rights of non-citizens. The course will then explore various topical legal and policy issues related to immigrants' rights and immigration reform as well as the normative values informing contemporary treatment of documented and undocumented immigrants. The course will draw on the instructor’s involvement in many current issues and extensive background litigating on behalf of the constitutional and civil rights cases of non-citizens in federal courts nationwide and recent service as senior policy advisor in government. Among the issues that will be covered are: detention of immigrants; state and local immigration regulation; discrimination against non-citizens in employment and public benefits; the intersection of criminal and immigration law; federal enforcement and non-enforcement policies; access to the courts and the right to judicial review; and labor and workplace rights of undocumented workers. Guest speakers will address areas of expertise. No prior course or background in immigration law is expected. Self-scheduled examination. L. Guttentag.
