Abstract

In Administrator-In-Chief, 69 Admin. L. Rev. 347 (2017), I set forth a framework for understanding the role of the president as chief administrator for the executive branch. The article drew upon Obama Administration executive actions pertaining to immigration. President Trump’s immigration policies illustrate even more starkly the need for legal and prudential criteria that circumscribe exercises of executive power. What do these policies, the travel ban especially, tell us about President Trump’s leadership of the executive branch? This essay explains how the travel ban threatens prudential norms labeled the “3Cs”: coherence, consistency, and coordination.

Keywords: immigration, executive power, administrative law, agencies, Constitutional law, travel ban
