Dear Senate: Don't forget to ask Kavanaugh about immigration


Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Leon Fresco, an immigration attorney in Holland & Knight's Washington office and former deputy assistant attorney general for the Office of Immigration Litigation, in  CNN reminds people that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be questioned about immigration matters in his confirmation hearings.  Kavanaugh has wrote few immigration opinions, having been on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which has a limited immigration docket (compared to the Ninth Circuit, for example).  But the Supreme Court in the next few years will likely to take on  many immigration matters, such as the rescission of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, immigrant detention, state versus federal power with respect to immigrants, and the review of removal orders.  Laura D. Francis on Bloomberg looks at how Kavanaugh might approach immigration cases in this article.
