    Large scale deportation has been a feature of the federal government’s immigration enforcement policy for years. Immigration policies under the new administration suggest even more expansive reliance on the tools associated with mass deportation, such as increasing the number of deportations, the scale of detention, and the categories of persons treated as removal priorities. This program examines the implications of the current administration’s mass deportation strategies for existing paradigms in the literature on immigration adjudication. Panelists will address various questions regarding immigration adjudication during this era of mass deportation, including: the rise–and likely expansion–of summary removals and other mechanisms that enable the federal government to effectuate removal in a streamlined manner and without the participation of the immigration courts; the impact of the backlog in the immigration courts on the federal government’s ability to achieve mass deportation; the continued relevance of the immigration courts and Board of Immigration Appeals as the central actors in immigration adjudication; post-deportation integration programs; and the influence of policies related to mass deportation on broader themes within immigration law such as judicial review, the rule of law, the constitutional rights of noncitizens, plenary power, or the entry fiction doctrine.
