主讲人简介:Robert Schapiro, dean and Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law at Emory Law School, specializes in constitutional law, federal courts, and civil procedure. His latest commentary focuses on the Affordable Care Act, which is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court this month.

Abstract: This talk will explore the key legal issues that will define immigration policy in the United States, including the following:

·What is the scope of the President’s power to target specific countries for special treatment in the immigration area?

·What is the scope of the President’s power to permit the continued residence of certain people who are in the country illegally?

·What is the authority of courts to review Presidential action in the immigration area, especially when the President asserts he is acting based on the national security of the United States?

·What is the role of states, such as Washington and Virginia, in challenging the Trump administration’s immigration policies?  Is the harm to public universities and students a sufficient basis for bringing a law suit?
