The Right To Migrate: A Human Rights Response To Immigration Restrictionism In Argentina, David C. Baluarte

Entry: What Mama Never Told You About Being There, Kathrin S. Mautino

San Diego Law Review

This Article analyzes the development of entry as an immigration concept, with special attention to those factors that affect entry analysis. These elements that the author finds must be considered in every potential entry into the United States are: (1) the legal status of the alien, (2) the purpose for finding an entry, and (3) the congressional intent behind the statutes involved. This Article explores the legal history of the term "entry," and illustrates the interaction of the three factors above. The author concludes that entry analysis demonstrates the political nature of immigration and the frequency that historical events rather ...
