Refugees Without Refuge: Formation and Failed Implementation of U.S. Political Asylum Policy in the 1980's
Refugees Without Refuge examines factors that influence the formation and implementation of U.S. asylum policy by Congress, the immigration bureaucracy, and the courts. It evaluates biases in administrative decision-making and links the Sanctuary Movement to these biases. Combines policy analysis, public law, doctrinal analysis of published and unpublished decisions (judicial and administrative) dealing with claims for asylum, and pluralism to explain U.S. asylum policy.
