Congresswoman Judy Chu joins final installment of Immigration Webinar Series

Following his ascension to the Oval Office in 2017, President Trump issued an executive order banning entry to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries. On June 26, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the third iteration of the ban after earlier versions had been enjoined in lower federal courts, and then revised and blocked again. Congresswoman Judy Chu, U.S. Representative for California's 27th Congressional District and Sponsor of the historic No Ban Act recently joined our panel of experts to explore legal developments since Trump v. Hawaii.
