IMMIGRATION: FORGING AN AMERICAN SOLUTION


Please join the Orange County Federalist Society on Thursday, April 16th to hear Goldwater Institute vice-president Clint Bolick, who has written a book with probable Presidential candidate Gov. Jeb Bush on the subject, discuss potential benefits and pitfalls of a legislative solution to the immigration issues facing the U.S. 

Mr. Bolick has argued and won cases in the United States Supreme Court, the Arizona Supreme Court, and state and federal courts from coast to coast. He has won landmark precedents defending school choice, freedom of enterprise, and private property rights and challenging corporate subsidies and racial classifications. Before joining the Goldwater Institute in 2007, Bolick was co-founder of the Institute for Justice and later served as president of the Alliance for School Choice.

In 2003, American Lawyer recognized Mr. Bolick as one of three lawyers of the year for his successful defense of school choice programs, culminating in Zelman v. Simmons-Harris in the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2009, Legal Times named Mr. Bolick one of the “90 Greatest D.C. Lawyers in the Past 30 Years.” Mr. Bolick received one of the freedom movement’s most prestigious awards, the Bradley Prize, in 2006 for advancing the values of democratic capitalism.

He is the author of several books, most recently Immigration: Forging an American Solution (2013), with Gov. Jeb Bush.  He is also the author of Two-Fer: Electing a President and a Supreme Court (Hoover Institution Press, 2012), Death Grip: Loosening the Law’s Stranglehold over Economic Liberty (Hoover Institution Press, 2011) and David’s Hammer: The Case for an Activist Judiciary (2007).

Ilya Shapiro

Please join the Orange County Federalist Society on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 for a special presentation by Mr. Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute, as he addresses issues concerning the legalization of marijuana in states such as Colorado, and specifically, the litigation by the states of Nebraska and Oklahoma against the state of Colorado.  The litigation contends that newly legal marijuana from neighbor Colorado is being illegally trafficked across their borders, negatively impacting the health and safety of their states' residents. The suit asserts that under the U.S. Constitution's supremacy clause, Colorado's decision to legalize and regulate the sale of recreational marijuana cannot stand so long as cannabis remains illegal under federal law.

Ilya Shapiro is editor-in-chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review. Before joining Cato, he was a special assistant/adviser to the Multi-National Force in Iraq on rule-of-law issues and practiced international, political, commercial, and antitrust litigation at Patton Boggs and Cleary Gottlieb.

Mr. Shapiro is the co-author of Religious Liberties for Corporations? Hobby Lobby, the Affordable Care Act, and the Constitution (Palgrave Pivot 2014). He has contributed to a variety of academic, popular, and professional publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, L.A. Times, USA Today, National Law Journal, Weekly Standard, New York Times Online, and National Review Online. He also regularly provides commentary for various media outlets, including CNN, Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision and Telemundo, the Colbert Report, and NPR.

Before entering private practice, Mr. Shapiro clerked for Judge E. Grady Jolly of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.  He holds an A.B. from Princeton University, an M.Sc. from the London School of Economics, and a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.

When: Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 11:30 a.m. (registration), 12:00 pm (lunch)
