Comment: A Chance

The Arizona Republic quotes Tamar Jacoby as saying "It's
certainly going to be a hard, uphill fight," said Tamar Jacoby,
president of ImmigrationWorks USA, an organization that supports
reform from a center-right, pro-business perspective. "Is there a
chance? Never say never, but the fallout from health care is
going to make it awfully difficult." For the full story, see here.

    The Padilla decision Cesar Garcia analyzes does seem to bring clarity to an area, and a welcome change in the long-standing tune sung by the U.S. government that removal is a civil penalty, unrelated to the punishment for the underlying criminal offense. But it is hardly a boon to non-citizen criminal defendants. Their non-immigration law savvy defense attorneys will likley adopt a better-safe-than-sorry approach to advising clients, advising them of the possibility of "adverse immigration consequences" and making referrals to or associating immigration counsel--for whose time the dfendant must pay. And if it is clear, as in the Padilla case, that pleading to the crime will result in removal, what option is available to the defendant? Plea and live in the shadows, or pay the attorney to stage a trial, and hope for acquittal?

    One fact that is missing from all the reports of this case that is hugely important in my eyes: why did Padilla, who had been an LPR for over 30 years never naturalize? Had he gained citizenship before he decided to run bales of marijuana through Eastern Kentucky, there would be no reason for us to even know about his case.

    Ditto on your question about naturalization, I see much of this and the consequences to US Citizen family members is horrendous.
