Professor Chin Comments for NPR’s Marketplace on Immigration Enforcement

Professor Gabriel “Jack” Chin commented for Marketplace, a radio program produced by American Public Media and broadcast on National Public Radio stations nationwide, on President Trump’s plan to revive a program that deputizes local law enforcement officers to enforce immigration law.

“I think there are some agencies that are going to be eager to be more involved in immigration, and they will have a green light,” said Chin.

Gabriel "Jack" Chin is Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Law and holder of the Edward L. Barrett Endowed Chair at UC Davis School of Law. He 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.
