John Eastman, director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, will appear on FOX News' The O'Reilly Factor today at 5:00 p.m. PDT/8:00 p.m. EDT. The segment will also be rebroadcast later today at 8:00pm PDT/11:00pm EDT. Eastman will discuss the City of Los Angeles' Rule 40, which prohibits police officers from enforcing federal immigration laws.
Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton wishes to loosen the policy, to permit officers to address the problem of illegal immigrants who are also convicted felons who have reentered the country illegally. The issue is discussed in the lead editorial of today's Los Angeles Times.
