Kit Johnson: Democrats debate the repeal of Section 1325 – what you need to know about the immigration law that criminalizes unauthorized border crossings

Kit

ImmigrationProf blogger Kit Johnson has a nice piece in The Conversation ("Democrats debate the repeal of Section 1325 – what you need to know about the immigration law that criminalizes unauthorized border crossings") that follows up on Julian Castro's call in the first Democratic Presidential debate calling for the repeal of 8 U.S.C. 1325. One particular passage in Kit's analysis struck me as particularly relevant and salient:  "According to University of California Los Angeles historian Kelly Lytle Hernandez, white supremacist South Carolina Sen. Coleman Livingston Blease was [] architect" of 1325 when it was passed in 1929.  Food for thought.

KJ.
