There is a nice story on Professor Kerry Abram's recent presentation of her article "Polygamy, Prostitution, and the Federalization of Immigration Law," 105 Colum. L. Rev. 641 (2005) at http://www.law.virginia.edu/home2002/html/news/2005_fall/abrams.htm The article thoughtfully analyzes how gender-based exclusions were used to accomplish racially exclusionary goals in the Chinese Exclusion laws. Kerry joined the Virginia faculty last year, making UVA one of the two law schools in the country with two tenure track immigration scholar/teachers.
