Video of Federalist Society debate on immigration and the Constitution

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

Yesterday, prominent constitutional law scholar John Eastman and I debated the moral and constitutional status of immigration restrictions, at the Federalist Society National Student Symposium. Federal district Judge Amul Thapar moderated. The debate covered both broader legal and policy issues related to immigration, and the United States v. Texas case, currently before the Supreme Court. I outlined my views on the broader issues covered in the debate here and here, and on United States v. Texas here.

Many thanks to the Federalist Society for setting this up, and to John Eastman for his thoughtful contribution to the debate!
