A not-very-throwback photo of James C. Romo
In 1976, Editor-in-Chief James C. Romo and Executive Associate Editor Richard Avila published their article The Undocumented Worker: The Controversy Takes a New Turn, 3 Chicana/o Latina/o Law Review 164 (1976).
The piece starts with this timeless statement: "Amid the economic and political unrest now troubling the nation there is a growing concern over the influx of undocumented immigrants."
But what's particularly timely about this piece is that it analyzes the early legislative history of 8 USC § 1324a(h)(3) (“authorized to be so employed * * * by the [Secretary]”), which, of course, is central in the United States v. Texas legislation.
