News Media and the Trump Executive Orders

I have been discussing the Trump executive orders in the media. In addition to news agencies like CNN, I also provided commentary to these interesting media outlets.

The Conversation -- On its website, "The Conversation" describes itself as "an independent source of news and views from the academic and research community, delivered direct to the public. Our team of professional editors works with university and research institute experts to unlock their knowledge for use by the wider public." I have contributed a few essays to The Conversation, including my latest, "History Shows Trump Will Face Legal Challenges to Detaining Immigrants." It was republished in Salon.

Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) - It was interesting to speak with MPR, as Minnesota is one of the states suing the Trump administration over the executive order that bans refugees and travelers from the seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the United States. https://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/02/02/behind-the-numbers-on-immigration-detentions
