This article discusses ten family migration cases decided by the House of Lords or Supreme Court (“the Court”) starting with Huang in 2007 and ending with Quila in 2011. It argues that they collectively embody a set of principles about the relationship between immigration control, the courts, and migrants’ family life which have enabled the affective ties of migrants and their families to receive proper recognition in the courts for the first time.

While families all over the world enlist the help of family, friends, or paid day care for their children, the need to do so is especially strong for individual women (single or divorced) who work outside the home to earn a living. Women who migrate for work in another country, in search of better pay, may need to have children stay in the homes of others in the country of origin. That "good mothering" may take many forms was not initially recognized under Dutch immigration law. The approach in the Netherlands eventually brbought it into conflict with European human rights law and with the merging immigration law of the European Union (EU).

La Cour européenne des droits de l'Homme (Cour européenne) a récemment mis en évidence une décision importante concernant l'admission des enfants dans le cas de Sen c. Pays-Bas. Selon la façon dont on interprète cette décision, cela pourrait signifier un changement significatif par rapport aux décisions antérieures que la Cour européenne a prises sur cette question.

The European Court on Human Rights (European Court) has recently brought out an important decision regarding the admission of children in the case of Sen v. the Netherlands. Depending on how one interprets this decision, it could mean a significant shift from earlier decisions that the European Court has taken on this issue. 

Cet article défend que la loi Page n'était pas un statut mineur qui visait une étroite classe de criminels, mais plutôt une tentative pour prévenir les femmes chinoises en général d'immigrer aux États-Unis.

 This Article argues that the Page Law was not a minor statute targeting a narrow class of criminals, but rather an attempt to prevent Chinese women in general from immigrating to the United States.

 

 

Cet article examine l'argument accidentel de procréation à travers le cadre de la théorie anthropologique, de l'histoire, de la littérature et de la loi constitutionnelle. Nous concluons que le mariage est parfois utilisé pour canaliser l'hétérosexualité masculine dans la reproduction, mais de faire valoir que cet objectif est la condition sine qua non du mariage est de simplifier considérablement son histoire à la fois dans la loi et de la culture.

This article examines the accidental procreation argument through the lenses of anthropological theory, history, literature, and constitutional law. We conclude that marriage has sometimes been used to channel male heterosexuality into reproduction, but to argue that this goal is the sine qua non of marriage is to vastly oversimplify its history in both law and culture.

Et si l'immigration familiale était bénéfique à la nation? Cet article engage une expérience de réflexion. Il pose la question: Pour quelles raisons une nation comme les États Unis décide de donner un nombre important de ses admissions d'immigration à des membres de la famille de citoyens et résidents permanents? En considérant cette question, cet article ne regarde pas uniquement l'évidence (relativement mince) de ce que le Congrès a effectivement considéré lors de l'adoption de ces dispositions, mais spécule aussi plus largement sur ce que les avantages de l'immigration fondée sur la famille pourraient être.
