Program Description: The US Supreme Court has heard a number of critically important immigration cases in recent years, ranging from challenges to new restrictions on asylum seekers’ rights to seek judicial redress, to attempted inclusion of a new citizenship question on the 2020 census, to denial of the right to a bond hearing in detention. Our scholars will discuss the most significant cases, their ramifications, and what to expect in 2020. We will also consider what role politics and partisanship plays in the High Court’s current decision-making and the nature and likely future of recent “court-packing” proposals.
