Reflections on Prosecutorial Discretion One Year After the Morton Memo


"Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia reflects on the implementation of the famous (or infamous) immigration-agency memos on using "prosecutorial discretion" in favor of various types of noncitizens who could be removed from the United States.  Were the people who said the memos went too far correct, or the people who said they should go farther?  This article builds on Professor Wadhia's extensive work on prosecutorial discretion in immigration contexts." - LexisNexis, June 14, 2012.
