Immigration Litigation in the Time of Trump by Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, 52 U.C. Davis Law Review On Line 121 (2019)

Abstract

A number of immigration policies have been announced, implemented, or challenged in courts during the first half of Donald J. Trump’s presidency. This Essay provides an update on ongoing litigation on a handful of these policies and was inspired by keynote remarks delivered at the Emerging Immigration Scholars Conference at Brigham Young University in June 2019. The topics covered by this Essay include: litigation affecting those covered by the travel or “Muslim Ban,” asylum policy changes, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”), unlawful presence rules, and the border wall. This Essay also discusses lessons and common themes emerging from the litigation brought in the first half of the Trump administration, including the nature of the legal claims, the limitations of litigation, and the human costs of the policies despite these lawsuits.
