Professor Chin Comments for PolitiFact Florida on Constitutional Rights of Undocumented Immigrants

Professor Gabriel “Jack” Chin commented for PolitiFact Florida on the constitutional rights of undocumented immigrants.  In the article, PolitiFact found support for a Florida immigrant rights advocate’s statements that the undocumented have constitutional rights.

“There is no question that all persons in the United States, including unauthorized migrants, enjoy the protections of the Constitution,” said Chin. “There is no debate about that among legal scholars.”

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.
