The Cross-Border Consequences Of U.S. Deportation Policy And Immigration Enforcement, Laura D. Gutierrez Feb 2017

The Cross-Border Consequences Of U.S. Deportation Policy And Immigration Enforcement, Laura D. Gutierrez

Distinguished Speaker Series

Despite statistics that illustrate how Mexican migration to the United States continues to decrease, politicians and voters continue to demand increased border enforcement, deportation of all undocumented migrants, and a wall to prevent Mexican migrants from entering the country without authorization. The disconnect between reality and rhetoric illustrates how Mexican migrants have become inextricably associated with illegality, crime and deportability although they have become central to how the U.S. economy operates. In an era of unprecedented deportations, Mexico has struggled to address the constant influxof deportees and return migrants. Based on research conducted in Mexico and the United States ...

The Twenty-Fifth Amendment To The Constitution Of The United States : A Thesis ..., Francis Joseph Romano

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

This paper presents a study of the Twenty·-Fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. The Amendment was first proposed to Congress as Senate and House Joint Resolutions in February 1965. It became law in February 1967, when Nevada secured the distinction of being the 38th state to ratify it, thus fulfilling the required agreement by three·-fourths of the states.

The Amendment has not yet been tested. It is the first comprehensive legislative attempt to solve three related problems that have plagued the executive branch of our government since the earliest days of the Union.

A History Of The Third Term Tradition, 1789-1928 : A Thesis ..., Elmer Ellsworth Stevens Jan 1940

A History Of The Third Term Tradition, 1789-1928 : A Thesis ..., Elmer Ellsworth Stevens

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

In discussing the Third Term Tradition, I have tried to compile a. history of the precedent rather than an argument for or against it. From Washington to Franklin Roosevelt many different viewoints and arguments have been advanced. Out of the wealth of material which is available I have attempted so far as possible to select impartially representative utterances on both sides of the question.

In our national history there have been several presidential elections in which the third term question was a major issue. That is especially true of the campaign (1940) which is now being fought. However, this paper ...
