Crimmigration is the intersection between criminal law and immigration law.
From a recent review of “Crimmigration Law, Second Edition”:
For most of the nation’s history criminal law and procedure and immigration law and procedure operated almost independently of the other. Criminal law and procedure were thought to be the province of prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys and the state and federal judges. Immigration law, in contrast, was confined to immigration courts housed within the executive branch of the federal government and staffed by immigration attorneys, immigration judges and prosecutors employed for many years by the Immigration and Naturalization Service and now the Department of Homeland Security.
We had a great panel of speakers including local defense attorney Gerry Wasson, Andrew Nietor, chair of the local American Immigration Lawyers Association and Aude Ruffing, Staff Attorney at the Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans (PANA).
