The Right to Bail in Immigration Cases

Posted: February 19, 2017 by Nazim in Uncategorized

This week’s episode covers a popular topic, the government’s power to make rules regarding immigration, but from an entirely different angle.  This week’s episode covers the case of Jennings v. Rodriguez, which asks the Court to decide whether or not non-citizens are entitled to the same bail rights as U.S. citizens.  Brett and Nazim cover the background of bail and why inconsistent precedent make this case more about judicial activism than anything else.  Law starts immediately, with a few tangents about beer and travel later on.

    Let’s just be honest, the “justice system” Is racist.
    Drug dealers come in all colors and if you are dealing cocaine, you will most likely be of the Caucasian persuasion and if you are dealing crack, the bail will be hire become the alleged perpetrator will have a significant amount of melanin.
    The reason for “reform” is because of the blatant racism.
    I enjoy your show, but please do not justify blatant racism in the unjust system.

      Thanks for commenting. I agree that the system is racist. But it would be much more helpful if you were to provide us with some more details in how we justified blatant racism in the unjust system.
