Immigrants’ Rights and Trump's Family Separation Policy with ACLU’s Lee Gelernt
2727

In this episode, Jill and Victor talked with Lee Gelernt from the ACLU about the important work that he is doing as the deputy director of ACLU’s Immigrants’ Right Project and a documentary called “The Fight,” which highlights Lee’s first-hand experience fighting one of the most gut-wrenching and cruel policies of the Trump administration: separating children from their parents at the border in 2018.

Lee Gelernt is widely recognized as one of the country’s leading public interest lawyers and has argued dozens of groundbreaking civil rights cases during his career, including in the U.S. Supreme Court and virtually every federal court of appeals in the country. He has also testified before both houses of Congress. During the past four years, he has successfully argued some of the country’s most high-profile cases, including a challenge to the Trump Administration’s unprecedented practice of separating families at the border; the Administration’s first and second asylum bans; and the Administration’s first Travel Ban. Lee has won numerous awards for his work, regularly lectures around the country, and frequently appears in national and international media. In addition to his work at the ACLU, he is an adjunct professor at Columbia Law School, and for several years was a visiting professor at Yale Law School.

In this episode, we joined Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub of the Federal Election Commission to discuss everything you need to know about voting in the 2020 election. We talk about everything from making sure that your mail-in ballot isn't rejected to advice for first-time voters.
