Our today's guests are Cristina Rodriguez and Adam Cox. Cristina is a Professor of Law at Yale Law School. She served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel in the U.S. Department of Justice from 2011-2013. She’s also served as a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Adam is the Robert A. Kindler Professor of Law at New York University School of Law, where he teaches and writes about immigration law, constitutional law, and democracy. He’s also served as the Karpatkin Civil Rights Fellow for the American Civil Liberties Union, where he was involved in racial profiling and public defender reform litigation. They’re the authors of “The President and Immigration Law,” which analyzes the historical and structural sources that explain the President’s overwhelming power over immigration policy. It’s a wonderful analysis of history, policy, and the Constitution.
