Description:

Speaker:

  • Dr. John Eastman, Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service at Chapman University School of Law

The lunch presentation will be led by Dr. John C. Eastman, the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service at Chapman University School of Law and author of an amicus brief on behalf of several members of Congress that was filed in the Arizona v. United States case.

On April 25, the last day of oral arguments for the 2011-12 term, the U.S. Supreme Court considered the President’s lawsuit against the State of Arizona that seeks to prevent Arizona from directing its law enforcement officials from helping to enforce federal immigration law. Eastman will discuss the impact of the case on law enforcement as well as the Department of Justice’s theory that by his own unilateral non-enforcement policies, the President can preempt state efforts to enforce the immigration laws that were adopted by Congress.
