Law Profs Blog Obama Interview

160pxobamabarack The three law professors who write ImmigrationProf Blog scored a blawgosphere coup, of sorts, getting U.S. senator and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, D-Ill., to participate in an exclusive interview covering a range of tough questions on immigration law and policy. The three -- Kevin R. Johnson, Bill O. Hing and Jennifer Chacón, all on the law school faculty at the University of California, Davis -- submitted questions to Obama and published his answers.

"We prepared a list of questions for Senator Obama on a range of difficult immigration issues, including immigration reform, undocumented immigration, family immigration, local (anti-)immigration ordinances, the U.S. government's treatment of Elvira Arrellano, integration of immigrants into U.S. society, the deaths along the U.S./Mexico border, and his vote in favor of the Secure Fence Act."

The bloggers have asked other candidates to answer the same questions but so far have received only Obama's response.
