SCOTUS preview 1: immigration and border Issues

In our first Supreme Court preview for October Term 2019, six guests offer competing views on three cases from the upcoming term's immigration and border issue docket.

Mark Rosenbaum (Public Counsel) and Josh Blackman (South Texas College of Law) discuss the consolidated DACA appeals set for argument in November.

Regarding Kansas v. Garcia, in which Kansas' high court held a state statute used against unauthorized immigrants seeking employment with fraudulent social security numbers was preempted by federal law, we're joined by Lew Olowski (Immigration Reform Law Institute) and Kevin Johnson (Dean, UC Davis SOL).

And Professor Gregory Sisk (Univ. St. Thomas SOL) and Larry Joseph (APA Watch) offer competing takes on whether the family of a Mexican teenager killed by a federal agent's lethal cross-border shot have a constitutional 'Bivens' claim.
