Altholz also addressed questions regarding the international response as well as the internal handling of the case by Mexican authorities. She referenced the internal corruption not as the result of a “failed state,” but rather as a “powerful state that abdicated (its role of) protection.”

Trump and Congress have to get the tax recipe right if they really want to have a good chance at boosting middle-class wages. Auerbach says there are two things lawmakers should do.
First, they need to ensure the 2017 (or 2018) tax bill doesn’t add to America’s $20 trillion debt. Second, they need to find ways to incentivize business investment.

“This university spent $600,000 to facilitate Ben Shapiro coming, and it was estimated if Milo Yiannopoulos came, it would cost $1 million,” he said. “It’s not sustainable for this campus on a weekly basis to facilitate free speech while protecting public safety. Where is that line to be drawn? It’s a really hard question.”

According to Chemerinsky, there is “no linkage” between the countries affected by the restrictions and terrorist activities in the United States. “It is likely unconstitutional for the same reasons,” Chemerinsky said. “(It’s) discrimination based on national origin.”

“I think this version of the travel ban is likely unconstitutional for the same reason as the prior two versions: It is directed primarily at countries with large Muslim populations; it is national origin discrimination; and there is no evidence linking terrorism to these countries,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Berkeley School of Law.

Jesse Choper … said the addition of North Korea, in particular, would counter opponents’ allegations that the order is a Muslim ban. He also noted that that courts traditionally give the president considerable authority over immigration and national security.
The new order “could be challenged on the same grounds” as the previous versions, Volpp said. She described the additions of three nations as “cosmetic,” saying U.S. immigration from North Korea and Chad is minuscule.

Erwin Chemerinsky … said the president can say what he wants about football players. “If the NFL were to fire them, there is not a First Amendment issue.
