Elizabeth Jones Publishes on Immigration Checkpoints and the Fourth Amendment

Professor Elizabeth Jones has published “Possible Problems at the San Clemente Checkpoint” in the Virginia Journal of Criminal Law, 6 Va. J. Crim. L. 43 (2018).  The Article addresses the interplay between the U.S. Supreme Court law governing the immigration checkpoint program and the new, ever-shifting challenges facing the Border Patrol in administering these checkpoints. It examines recent cases originating from vehicle stops at the San Clemente checkpoint, and queries whether the government has been conducting pretextual stops at this checkpoint, and at others in the southwest border zone, to further a larger, arguably unlawful, agenda.
