Between Two Ilyas: Judicial Nominations, Immigration, and Voting with Your Feet

Issues: Governance

The fall has seen many heated political debates, to say the least. Events like an unexpected Supreme Court battle and an impending Presidential election have brought issues ranging from immigration to the rule of law into public consciousness.

Now, in a special meeting of the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group, join Jonathan Bydlak, Interim Director of the Governance Program at the R Street Institute, and Anthony Marcum, Resident Fellow in Governance, as they discuss these topics with two scholars who have authored new books on these important, timely issues.

Ilya Somin, Professor of Law at George Mason University, will discuss his latest book, Free to Move: Foot Voting, Migration, and Political Freedom, and Ilya Shapiro, the Director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute, will talk about his new book, Supreme Disorder: Judicial Nominations and the Politics of America’s Highest Court.

Both works grapple extensively with issues of constitutional structure, and both examine the

value of limiting and decentralizing political power. These issues could not be timelier, and we couldn’t find better experts to discuss them than the two Ilyas.
