  • Article: Will Immigrant Investors and Regional Centers Benefit From Court Win or Has Time Run Out? by Leslie Dellon for Immigration Impact

    Will Immigrant Investors and Regional Centers Benefit From Court Win or Has Time Run Out? by Leslie Dellon A recent court win that restored lower minimum investment amounts was good news for regional centers and immigrant investors in the EB-5 program. But the bad news is the EB-5 regional center program will end on June 30, because Congress did not extend it.

  • Article: Immigration in the Supreme Court, 2020 Term by Kevin R. Johnson for ImmigrationProf Blog

    Immigration in the Supreme Court, 2020 Term by Kevin R. Johnson In the 2020 Term, the Supreme Court decided five immigration cases. The U.S. government prevailed in four of the five cases, an 80 percent success rate. This rate was higher than that seen in recent Terms. In my estimation, there are no blockbusters among the five immigration decisions. The decisions primarily focused on interpreting the complexities of the Immigration & Nationality Act. The cases are in the chronological...

  • Article: Reflections on Giuliani’s Suspension of his New York Bar License by Cyrus Mehta

    Reflections on Giuliani's Suspension of his New York Bar License by Cyrus Mehta The temporary suspension of Rudolph Giuliani’s bar license by a New York appellate court for making false statements on behalf of Donald Trump’s election is thought provoking for lawyers, especially those who have opposed Trump and continue to oppose him. The court wrote that “these false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client.” The court further stated t...

    Article: Two Days at the Nogales Border by Raquel Aldana

    Two Days at the Nogales Border by Raquel Aldana We parked our cars on the U.S. side of the border at an empty parking lot in the desolate, hot Sonoran desert landscape. We were a small team of four: a lawyer, a student legal intern, a community organizer, and I, a law professor from King Hall. I was there to volunteer with a small team of attorneys from Arizona which has been coming to the Nogales border for the past four years to provide legal orientations to asylum-seekers. In recent months...
