|Federalist Society’s Executive Branch Review Project: A Teleforum with Senator Mike Lee and David McIntosh - Podcast|
An increase in Federal executive branch regulatory activity – whether through executive order, formal or informal administrative agency action – has been noted by many across the country. In launching the Executive Branch Review Project, the Practice Groups of the Federalist Society seek to prompt a national debate about whether there has been an uptick in such regulatory activity, and, if so, with what consequence. The project will provide objective resources that identify major government activity, and will provide a forum for debate and discussion about whether such regulation constitutes a form of legal and regulatory overreach. The first component of this project is a new blog dedicated to highlighting action or inaction by the executive branch, http://www.executivebranchproject.com/
To kickoff this new endeavor, U.S. Senator Michael S. Lee (Utah) and Federalist Society founder and Vice Chairman David M. McIntosh discussed the project and provided their perspectives on the use of executive power.
|The Voting Rights Act in the Supreme Court: Shelby County v. Holder - Podcast|
On Wednesday, February 27, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Shelby County v. Holder. At stake is the possible survival of Section V of the Voting Rights Act. Some have argued that the use of race-conscious districting to maximize safe black legislative seats – built into the enforcement of the Voting Rights Act – has been a brake on minority political aspirations. Others have argued that Section V is overcome by events, based on election participation data forty years old. Still others argue that Section V has been vital in leveling the playing field of electoral politics. On this previously recorded conference call, our experts attended the oral argument and reported to listeners in this special "Courthouse Steps" edition of Teleforum.
|Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution - Event Audio/Video|
The Las Vegas Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society is pleased to present noted legal pioneer Clint Bolick to discuss his new book on immigration reform. In his new book, Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution, co-authored with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Goldwater Institute litigation chief Clint Bolick calls for a complete overhaul of America's 60-year old immigration laws. Fundamental reform should be based on two principles: the importance of immigration and the rule of law. Arguing that the best way to curb illegal immigration is to create a well-functioning legal immigration system, Bolick calls for increased numbers of work-based visas and an end to the "chain migration" that dominates legal immigration. He also offers proposals for the millions of illegal immigrants currently in the country and the children they brought with them. Finally, Bush and Bolick urge Republicans to take aggressive steps to solve their problems with immigrant voters.
