Professor Sarkar Writes for S.F. Chronicle About Immigrants Being Policed by Tax Law

News Posted on August 9, 2021

Policing poor immigrants through tax law weakens the borders between immigration and tax law meant to protect citizens and noncitizens alike, Professor Shayak Sarkar writes in an Aug. 4 opinion piece in the San Francisco Chronicle. Read the op-ed. 

On Aug. 5, Lewis & Clark Law School Professor Juliet Stumpf favorably reviewed Sarkar’s article on the same themes, “Capital Controls as Migrant Controls,” in Jotwell. Read the review.

Shayak Sarkar's scholarship addresses the structure and legal regulation of inequality. His substantive interests lie in financial regulation, employment law, immigration, and taxation.
