Published: Nov. 24, 2021

This advisory first reviews the case history and the precedent governing the legal situation Mr. Palomar-Santiago was in when he was charged with illegal re-entry. It then addresses both Mr. Palomar-Santiago’s and the government’s arguments before the Court and the Court’s decision. Finally, the advisory turns to how the Court’s decision affects advocacy strategies for future collateral attacks on removal orders under § 1326(d).
