Professors Koh and Rodríguez Sign Letter Deeming Obama Immigration Action Legal
On November 20, 2014, President Barack Obama announced an executive action that will shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation and grant them work permits. In support of this action, the White House released a letter signed by 10 of the nation’s top legal and constitutional scholars, including Sterling Professor of International Law Harold Hongju Koh and Leighton Homer Surbeck Professor of Law Cristina Rodríguez '00.
The letter calls the new policy "lawful" and notes that it is "within the power of the executive branch."
