Professor Chin Comments on Immigration for The Atlantic

Professor Gabriel "Jack" Chin commented for The Atlantic on the unique challenges faced by undocumented immigrants from Asia, who traditionally have been less visible and vocal than undocumented Latinos.  Part of the reason, Professor Chin suggested, may be that larger numbers give Latinos more political clout.

"Undocumented Asians may conclude, to some extent correctly, that this is a fight that has to be waged and won by the Latino community because there're just so many more of them," said Chin. "The Latino involvement in immigration reform is community-wide, both undocumented and legal."

Gabriel "Jack" Chin, who joined the King Hall faculty in 2011, is a prolific and much-cited criminal and immigration law scholar whose work has addressed many of the most pressing social issues of our time.
