President Donald Trump has made Elizabeth McCormick’s and Mimi Marton’s lives busier than normal, and that’s saying something.
McCormick and Marton are professors at the University of Tulsa College of Law, where their duties include running the Tulsa Immigrant Resource Network and the Immigrant Rights Project.
In the last few weeks, their workload has increased because of the three immigration-related executive orders issued by Trump. Those include one calling for the construction of a wall along the southern border of the United States; another that speaks to local law enforcement’s role in enforcing immigration laws; and last’s Friday’s highly controversial order halting all refugees from entering the country for 120 days and banning individuals from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days.
It’s a lot to digest, but with help from McCormick and Marton, that’s what we tried to made sense of on today’s edition of Listen Frontier.
