That’s the title of an immensely valuable article authored by Army Major Takashi Kagawa and published in the October 2014 edition of The Army Lawyer. The article is available here.

Major Kagawa provides a fairly comprehensive overview of the immigration laws and how they are enforced, an analysis of the ways these laws can affect service members, and guidance for prosecutors and defense counsel. Additionally, the article includes a number of valuable appendices, one of which (Appendix G) includes a chart of (what looks to be) every offense listed in the MCM along with Major Kagawa’s analysis of the associated immigration consequences.

I think the article is essential reading for any military justice practitioner.
