The Immigration Nexus: Law, Politics, and Constitutional Identity

L to R: Profs Hammond, Hong, Parry, Dussault, Maltz, Stumpf, Frost, Wasserman, Johnson

Yesterday, I had the distinct pleasure of participating in the Lewis and Clark Law Review's Spring symposium, titled The Immigration Nexus: Law, Politics, and Constitutional Identity.

Our day started with an intimate lunch for the panelists as well as Juliet Stumpf, Stephen Manning, Jim Oleske, and the incoming and outgoing EICs. Juliet and Stephen facilitated discussion about sanctuary cities. We talked about the California lawsuit as well as local problems in Oregon with immigration enforcement actions.

The symposium officially began after lunch with the following lineup:

  • Kit Johnson, Opportunities & Anxieties: A Study of International Students in the Trump Era
  • Earl Maltz, The Constitution and the Trump Travel Ban
  • Howard Wasserman, Universal Not Nationwide and Not Appropriate: On the Scope of Injunctions in Constitutional Litigation
  • Amanda Frost, In Defense of Nationwide Injunctions

After a break, we heard these additional talks:

  • Susan Dussault, Who Needs DACA or the DREAM Act?
  • Andrew Hammond, The Immigration-Welfare Nexus in a New Era?
  • Kari Hong, The 20-Year Attack on Asylum

The entire session can be viewed at this link, which I'm told works best with Chrome. Jump to 10:08 for the start.
