Now available and updated for 2013! The Case Update to the Defending Immigrants in the Ninth Circuit: Impact of Crimes under California and Other State Laws. The PDF provides the 2013 update only to the 10th Edition, and does not include the full book.
Criminal defense attorneys who represent noncitizens and immigration attorneys alike have long relied on ILRC’s expertise and resources in defense of noncitizens in criminal and immigration proceedings. The all-new 2013 Case Update shows step-by-step how to identify, analyze and defend against the adverse immigration consequences of charges, using a combination of user-friendly charts, summaries and practice aids, and in-depth discussion of defense strategies. It also includes extensive discussion of California offenses, including new defense strategies for assault, domestic violence, drugs, sexual crimes with minors and other commonly charged offenses. A key section describes new strategies for how to control the record of conviction in pleas to "divisible" statutes in light of the Ninth Circuit decision in Young v. Holder. This Case Update provides requirements for immigration applications (asylum, cancellation, etc.) and post-conviction relief.
