The Supreme Court recently ruled against the Trump administration’s attempt to abolish DACA, the Obama-era program protecting DREAMers from deportation. However, the Court’s opinion may have unforeseen consequences for the Constitution and balance of powers.

John Yoo joined the show to explain why the SCOTUS ruling creates a dangerous precedent for executive power. He also discusses Chief Justice John Roberts’ voting record, President Trump’s defense of the Constitution, and what’s at stake in the 2020 election.

John Yoo is a Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, and a visiting scholar at AEI. He served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of the Legal Counsel of the US Department of Justice, where he worked on constitutional and national security matters, as General Counsel of the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and as a law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas.
