Adam J. White is an assistant professor of law at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, where he directs the C. Boyden Gray Center for the Administrative State. And he is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, writing on American constitutionalism, the courts, and the administrative state in AEI’s Program on Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies.
On October 25, 2019, the Gray Center hosted “The Administration of Immigration.” For this conference, the Gray Center invited scholars to write papers exploring ways to improve our nation’s immigration system, and discuss them alongside other experts in panel sessions addressing such topics as whether immigration law is special, the costs and benefits of immigration, judicial review of the immigration system, and the moral underpinnings of immigration law. The event also featured keynote remarks from James McHenry, Director of the Executive Office of Immigration Review at the United States Department of Justice.
The second panel looked at national security, special courts, and whether immigration law is special. The discussion revolved around a new working paper on “The Forgotten FISA Court: Exploring the Inactivity of the Alien Terrorist Removal Court” by panelist Aram Gavoor (co-authored by Timothy Belsan). The panel was moderated by Jesse Panuccio, who is affiliated with the Gray Center as a Public Service Fellow. The papers and video are available at https://administrativestate.gmu.edu/events/the-administration-of-immigration/.More
