Legal Insight on Immigration Restrictions

When Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump made his modest proposal to temporarily halt all Muslims from coming to the United States after the San Bernadino shooting, there a flurry of political protestation at such an "unconstitutional" proposal.  

Well, Temple Law Professor Jan C. Ting offered countervailing perspective to this "unconstitutional" conclusion.  The electorate may decide that a Muslim ban is immoral, unwise or unworkable, but Ting concludes that no kind of immigration restriction is unconstitutional.
