Abstract

In this essay in response to Angela M. Banks, The Normative and Historical Cases for Proportional Deportation, 62 Emory L.J. 1243 (2013), I discuss how Professor Banks’s contribution provides a compelling illustration of the disjuncture between citizenship status and long-term residence in U.S. immigration law. Congress unintentionally created this schism and this state of affairs need not be. But I also raise three additional questions: What are the best strategies to fix the problem? Should we consider detrimental effects of U.S. deportation decisions on other nations? If the United States eases its “war on drugs,” shouldn’t that be reflected in immigration law?

Keywords: deportation, citizenship, status, residence, immigration, citizen, alien, lawful permanent resident
