On Monday, April 18, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in United States v. Texas, which will examine the constitutionality of the President's executive actions on immigration. In addition to complex questions about standing and administrative law, the Court has added a Take Care Clause question to the argument. Our expert attended the oral arguments and offered a summary as well as his analysis.

In 1981, President Reagan signed Executive Order 12333. It assigned foreign intelligence collection responsibilities to the agencies that make up the Intelligence Community. Among those responsibilities is electronic surveillance. Following the Edward Snowden disclosures, President Obama placed additional restrictions on the collection and use of certain foreign intelligence, and privacy advocates have argued that additional scrutiny must be applied to electronic surveillance related to Executive Order 12333. Our experts discussed how such collection works, how the intelligence is used, and how this activity supports national security.
