Chemerinsky: What Sessions v. Dimaya means for immigration law

Erwin Chemerinsky writes for ABA Journal, May 3, 2018

At the very least, Sessions v. Dimaya is quite important in the immigration context. The court reaffirms that laws concerning deportation and removal are to be subjected to the same vagueness analysis as criminal statutes. The court’s striking down the residual clause in the Immigration and Nationality Act will matter for many facing deportation.
