Nevada judge says immigration law making reentry a felony is unconstitutional, has racist origins

Michelle Rindels & Riley Snyder, The Nevada Independent (August 18, 2021)

A Nevada federal judge has ruled that Section 1326, which makes it a felony to reenter the U.S. after being deported, is unconstitutional as it was enacted with discriminatory intent against Latinos, violating the Equal Protection Clause.
