Keller on the Illegal-Reentry Guideline

Doug Keller (Georgetown University Law Center) has posted Fix the Broken Illegal Reentry Guideline (Federal Sentencing Reporter, Vol. 23, No. 4, April 2011) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This short essay is included in an issue of the Federal Sentencing Reporter that was dedicated to giving advice to the U.S. Sentencing Commission on setting their future priorities. The essay contends that the Commission should set their sights on repairing the broken illegal re-entry Guideline. This item should be at the top of the Commission’s to-do list both because the Guideline is so broken and because so many defendants are now sentenced for illegal re-entry.
