Professor Michael Kagan Interviewed by 8 News Now

Professor Michael Kagan is co-director of the Immigration Clinic at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Nov. 21, Professor Kagan was interviewed by 8 News Now in a segment titled "Budget Impact" (1:08 mark).

In the segment, about President Obama's executive action on immigration, Professor Kagan says, "This will make it easier for the government to make sure that everyone's paying taxes. It also lets people think much more about how they're going to use their money, invest their money, and save because they have that authorization to work."

Professor Kagan has written several of the most widely cited articles in the fields of refugee and asylum law. His research on credibility assessment in asylum cases has been repeatedly relied on by federal appellate courts and, according to a 2012 commentary, has "guided most subsequent research and analysis on the topic."
