Josh Blackman: Debate on the Constitutionality of DAPA with Ilya Somin at the George Mason Federalist Society

From the post:

On 9/14/16, Ilya Somin and I [that is, Josh Blackman] debated the constitutionality of DAPA and the Take Care Clause at the George Mason Federalist Society Chapter. It was a special treat to verbally-joust with my former professor at my alma matter. As well, the event was moderated by my former International Law Professor, Jeremy Rabkin. The debate was replete with references to the Statue of Liberty (built at an immigration checkpoint), Donald Trump (no wall will be built), and of course Star Wars (Ilya is fond of comparing me to the wayward Anakin Skywalker; of course, he is Obi Wan).

The debate can be watched here.
