Removing Criminal Aliens: The Pitfalls and Promises of Federalism, 22 Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy 367 (1999)

Abstract

For fifteen years, the United States has experienced high levels of immigration. Although analysts debate the effects and merits of this development, all acknowledge one undesirable consequence: an increasing number of aliens commit crimes in the United States but are not removed. Decrying the costs of arresting, prosecuting, and incarcerating these criminal aliens, politicians in jurisdictions where immigrants cluster have implored the federal government for more than a decade to remove the illegal aliens as quickly as possible.
