Our national debate over immigration policy is certainly not new, but with executive orders suspending refugee admissions and immigration from certain Muslim- majority nations, and sweeping DHS memoranda designed to make all undocumented immigrants fair game for deportation, the Trump Administration has generated a heated debate about the very nature of America. As its agenda continues to take shape, what responses are available legislatively, administratively, or in the courts? Topics include the executive orders, due process rights, detention, deportation, prosecutorial discretion, childhood arrivals and the legality of registration systems.
