New Government Report: Authority of State and Local Police to Enforce Federal Immigration Law

Authority of State and Local Police to Enforce Federal Immigration Law
by Michael John Garcia
Paperback, 20 pages, 2010, $20.00
ISBN: 1437940889

“The power to prescribe rules as to which aliens may enter the U.S. and which aliens may be removed resides solely with the federal government, and in particular with Congress. Deportation and associated administrative processes related to the removal of aliens are civil in nature, while certain violations of federal immigration law, such as smuggling unauthorized aliens into the country, carry criminal penalties. The ability of state and local police to make arrests for federal immigration violations is a subject of legal debate and conflicting jurisprudence. This report discusses the authority of state and local law enforcement to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration law through the investigation and arrest of persons believed to have violated such laws.”

New Government Report: Quarantine and Isolation

Quarantine and Isolation: Selected Legal Issues Relating to Employment
by Nancy Lee Jones
Paperback, 15 pages, 2009, $10.00
ISBN: 1437925847

“On June 11, in response to the global spread of a new strain of influenza, the level of influenza pandemic alert was raised to indicate the start of an actual pandemic. Questions relating to employment is a significant issue raised by a pandemic since if individuals fear losing their employment, compliance with public health measures such as isolation or quarantine may suffer. Although the common law doctrine of employment-at-will (EAW) is applicable, there is an exception for public policy reasons. This report examines the EAW doctrine, application of the public policy exception in the case of a potential influenza pandemic, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and application of the non-discrimination mandates of the Americans with Disability Act.”

New Government Report: Security of Air Cargo During Ground Transportation [Redacted]

Security of Air Cargo During Ground Transportation [Redacted]
by Richard L. Skinner
Paperback, 34 pages, 2009, $20.00
ISBN: 1437930522

“This report addresses the effectiveness of the Transport. Security Admin’s. (TSA) efforts to secure air cargo while it is handled or transported on the ground, prior to being shipped on passenger aircraft. Conclusions: Personnel were accessing, handling, or transporting air cargo without the required background checks or training. Also, 23% of drivers did not satisfy the required training and testing requirements. Automated tools to assist inspectors in analyzing results and focusing on high-risk areas in air cargo security were not adequate. As a result, air cargo is vulnerable to the introduction of explosives and other destructive items before it is loaded onto planes. The report makes six recommendations to strengthen the security of air cargo during ground transportation.”

New Government Report: How Food Away From Home Affects Children’s Diet Quality

How Food Away From Home Affects Children’s Diet Quality
by Lisa Mancino
Paperback, 33 pages, 2010, $25.00
ISBN: 1437940846

“This study includes estimates of how each child’s consumption of food away from home, food from school, and caloric sweetened beverages affects that child’s diet quality and calorie consumption. Compared with meals and snacks prepared at home, food prepared away from home increases caloric intake of children, especially older children. Each food-away-from-home meal adds 108 more calories to daily total intake among children ages 13-18 than a snack or meal from home. Both food away from home and all food from school also lower the daily diet quality of older children. Among younger children, the effect of food from school on caloric intake and diet quality does not differ significantly from that of food from home.”

New Government Report: Energy Use in the U.S. Food System

Energy Use in the U.S. Food System
by Pattrick Canning
Paperback, 39 pages, 2010, $25.00
ISBN: 1437930336

“Energy is an important input in growing, processing, packaging, distributing, storing, preparing, serving, and disposing of food. In the U.S., use of energy along the food chain for food purchases by or for U.S. households increased between 1997 and 2002 at more than six times the rate of increase in total domestic energy use. This increase in food-related energy flows is over 80% of energy flow increases nationwide over the period. The use of more energy-intensive technologies throughout the U.S. food system accounted for half of this increase, with the remainder attributed to population growth and higher real per capita food expenditures. Food-related energy use as a share of the national energy budget grew from 14.4% in 2002 to 15.7% in 2007.”

by Margaret Mikyung Lee
Paperback, 14 pages, 2010, $10.00

“In the 2010 decennial census, the Census Bureau will attempt to count the total population of the U.S. This includes, as in previous censuses, all U.S. citizens, lawful aliens, and unauthorized aliens. Some have suggested excluding illegal aliens from the census count, in part so that they would not be included in the data used to apportion House seats among the states and determine voting districts within them. The Constitution requires a decennial census to determine the “actual enumeration” of the “whole number of persons” in the U.S. Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) Constitutional Analysis: Data for Apportionment Purposes; Data Used for Intrastate Redistricting; (3) Conclusion; (4) Selected Legislation to Exclude Aliens from the Census.
