    The Legal Authority of Presidential Executive Orders

    Co-hosts Mitchel Winick and Stephen Wagner are joined by regular guest co-host Constitutional Law Professor Michael Cohen to discuss the constitutional and legal authority of Presidential Executive Orders. The most recent orders issued by President Trump have raised constitutional questions regarding the separation of powers between federal and state governments. For example, can the federal government "penalize" or "threaten" states, counties, and cities that are designated as "sanctuary" juristictions when it comes to the enforcement of immigration laws and policies? Can the President restrict federal funding to universities by Presidential Order because he does not agree with their policies or curriculum? If a Presidential Executive Order appears to directly conflict with existing federal or international law, what steps need to be taken to resolve the conflict? Who gets to makes the challenge and where is it made? Listen in to learn more about these challenging issues.
