The Fugitive Disentitlement Doctrine: A Fundamental Question Unanswered

Abstract

This is a short editorial piece. In it, I argue the Supreme Court should have taken up the issue of when a deportable alien is a "fugitive" for the purposes of the Fugitive Disentitlement Doctrine. The federal circuits are split on this issue. As the article shows, even a related statute is open to wide interpretation. Therefore, the Court could have given clarity to this issue.
