Kamal Essaheb, David B. Rivkin, Jr., Ilya Shapiro, Peter Bisbee February 20, 2015

On November 20, 2014, President Obama, with much attention from the media and the public, announced executive action on immigration. Our discussion will address the specifics of the President’s actions, and the legality of those actions. What exactly was said and done by the President, and how do his actions differ from acts he previously asserted were beyond his unilateral power? Has the President exceeded his constitutional authority to act? What happens next? Please join us over the lunch hour for a discussion with three experts in the field.

Featuring:

  • Mr. Kamal Essaheb, Immigration Policy Attorney, National Immigration Law Center
  • Mr. David Rivkin, Partner, Baker & Hostetler LLP
  • Mr. Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute

Immigration and the States - Podcast

Criminal Law & Procedure Practice Group Podcast
Peter K. Nunez, Margaret D. Stock, Brian M. Fish December 19, 2014

Immigration law and enforcement have been on the front pages for the last several years, and that shows no signs of changing. One aspect to our national debate on immigration that hasn't received as much attention as it should is the effect that the several states can have on the issue. Through its policing powers and criminal sentencing guidelines, a state can influence who the federal immigration authorities can remove from the country. Our experts discussed the important constitutional issues that these trends present.
