In a recent interview with CCTV NEWS, Florida International University College of Law Professor Ediberto Román comments on U.S. immigration enforcement. CCTV NEWS is the English language news channel of China Central Television (CCTV), the nation’s largest national broadcasting network.
Professor Román is a nationally-acclaimed scholar and an award-winning educator with broad teaching interests and an extensive scholarship portfolio. His principal research interest involves analyzing the construction and interpretation of constitutional law and immigration policy. His work may be best described as traditional in its structure and use of authority, but critical in its perspective. Román’s research necessarily deals with the intersection of, on the one hand, citizenship law, immigration law, public international law, and constitutional law and, on the other hand, theoretical perspectives based on classic philosophy, neo-liberal theory, critical race theory, post-colonial studies, Diaspora literature, and social theory generally.
