Abstract

In this Essay responding to Hiroshi Motomura's Foulston Siefkin Lecture at the Washburn University School of Law, I explore the question of when and whether categorical grants of deferred action to unauthorized immigrants can promote, rather than undermine, rule of law values.

Keywords: immigration, deferred action, rule of law, prosecutorial discretion, unauthorized immigrants
