Deporting “criminal aliens” has become the highest priority in American immigration enforcement. Today, most deportations are achieved through the “crimmigration” system, a term that describes the convergence of the criminal justice and immigration enforcement systems. This panel will provide an overview of determining the immigration consequences of criminal convictions and place present day crimmigration issues in Tennessee in conversation with the racial justice issues. The goal is to address how the Tennessee Bar can be aware and assist in representing individuals placed in the prison to deportation pipeline.
