César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández (Capital University Law School) has posted Book Review: Social Control and Justice: Crimmigration in the Age of Fear (Crime, Law, and Social Change (2013, Forthcoming)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
It is not often that a new area of law emerges. Since the 1980s, however, criminal law and immigration law have increasingly converged to do just that. Crimmigration law, as this new field is called, features a distinct mélange of substantive law and law enforcement techniques. In Social Control and Justice: Crimmigration in the Age of Fear (2013), an international group of scholars from a variety of disciplines addresses crimmigration law’s development in the United States and Europe. This book review highlights the collection’s key contributions to our understanding of crimmigration law, and identifies unexplored questions for future research.
