This chapter provides a review of research related to U.S. deportation policies specific to criminal convictions and criminal court proceedings. The chapter begins with a survey of the history of deportation, highlighting the relevant policies and charting through the expansion of deportation practices, with analyses of the major motivating factors for deportation. The objective in this chapter is not only to review the literature on deportation as a collateral consequence but to also understand the political and social factors such as anti immigrant sentiments that have played a role in driving deportation, including an analysis of the relationship between deportation rates and crime. Examinations of current social science research on the broader topic of immigration enforcement is used in this chapter to provide a blueprint for future empirical research that could provide invaluable insights into the impact of deportation policies across social contexts, including families and communities, both domestic and abroad. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the potential areas of research specific to deportations resulting specifically as a collateral consequence of criminal conviction.
