USF Prof James Taylor Comments on Legacy of ACA, Role of Politics and Process in Congress on KQED News Panel with Thuy Vu

"This is about politics and process. The way this is being rushed through echoes a lot of what the Republicans, especially John Boehner, felt that the Democrats had done to the Republicans with the Affordable Care Act. To see the Republicans flip the script by meeting in secret for days and leaving the 400 page bill to be read in a short period of time before voting is really a problem."

USF Law Dean John Trasviña cited in SF Chronicle article on Republican reaction to Trump: Is GOP ignoring an emergency call? | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Los Angeles Times: Trust Act could be another win for immigrants and their advocates

Los Angeles Times: Trust Act could be another win for immigrants and their advocates | USF in the News | Scoop.it

If Gov. Jerry Brown signs legislation known as the Trust Act, federal immigration authorities will have a somewhat harder time taking custody of people in local jails who are suspected of being in the country illegally.

The measure, which would prohibit local jailers from holding most arrestees for an additional 48 hours before federal authorities arrive, is not expected to put a large dent in the number of deportations.

...

Absent 48-hour holds, ICE will still be able to take custody of immigrants, either at the jail or somewhere else.

"What impact does it have?" asked Bill Ong Hing, a professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law. "My answer is it sends a message, but it's true, really the big debate is over the program itself that triggers the detainers; and if ICE really wants the folks, they can come get them earlier."
