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 fourth and final panel looked at the role of judicial review in immigration law. The discussion centered around two new papers. The first was “Chevron‘s Asylum: Re-Assessing Deference in Refugee Cases,” by Michael Kagan of the University of Nevada Las Vegas, and the second was “Recalibrating Judicial Review in Immigration Adjudication,” by Christopher Walker of the Ohio State University. The panel was moderated by the Gray Center’s Executive Director, Adam White. The papers and video are available at https://administrativestate.gmu.edu/events/the-administration-of-immigration/.

Featuring Michael Kagan, David Rubenstein, Christopher Walker, and Adam White.
