"The ABA Commission on Hispanic Legal Rights and Responsibilities (ABA Hispanic Commission), in collaboration with the ABA Commission on Immigration, hosted a panel discussion on 'The Pros and Cons of the Exercise of Executive Action in Immigration Law' at the American Bar Association’s Midyear Meeting on Saturday, February 7, 2015 in Houston, Texas. The panelists explored President Obama’s recent executive action decision to provide temporary legal status to certain undocumented immigrants. Panelists discussed the impact of this decision and how the pending lawsuits against the President will impact its implementation. Panelists included myself, as well as Thomas A. Saenz, President and General Counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund and Prof. Michael Olivas from the University of Houston Law Center."

Professor Saucedo's contributions to the panel are featured in this article in the ABA Journal.
