Opinion analysis: Court rejects retroactive application of 1996 immigration law amendment

Here is my analysis on SCOTUSBlog of the Supreme Court's decision last week in Vartelas v. Holder.

UPDATE (April 5, 9): The Legal Action Center, the Immigrant Defense Project, and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild issued a Practice Advisory, Vartelas v. Holder: Implications for LPRs Who Take Brief Trips Abroad and Other Potential Favorable Impacts, which describes the Court’s decision and offers strategies for affected lawful permanent residents. For another perspective on Vartelas v. Holder than outlined in my analysis, see Fleuti Lives! The Restoration of a Constitutional Decision By Gary Endelman and Cyrus D. Mehta.
