Associate Dean McCormick comments on the impact of Justice Scalia’s death on the prosecution and enforcement of immigration cases

Elizabeth McCormick, Associate Dean for Experiential Learning, Associate Clinical Professor, and Director of The University of Tulsa College of Law’s Immigrant Rights Project, is interviewed regarding the impact of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death on the outcome of United States v. Texas, a pending case involving a challenge by 26 Republican-led states to President Obama’s use of executive authority to exercise discretion in the prosecution and enforcement of immigration cases. In particular, the states challenge the President’s use of executive authority to defer removal or deportation in certain cases involving unauthorized immigrants who were brought to the United States as young children and unauthorized immigrant parents of US citizen children.

McCormick’s comments appear in La Opini├│n, the largest Spanish-language newspaper┬áin the United States.
