Georgetown Law Professor John C. L. Sullivan, an immigration lawyer who has represented more than 1,000 immigrants in federal court, has announced that he is resigning from the court after President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration was put on hold on Friday, March 3.
Sullivan told Breitbart News that he had not given the President a “fair hearing” as a result of his remarks and he was unable to participate in a hearing to defend the executive order.
He said he was concerned that Trump’s actions could lead to violence at the hands of anti-immigrant protesters.
“I believe that we need to take the steps to protect the constitutional rights of people, and I’m tired of it,” Sullivan told the publication.
“My goal has always been to be an advocate for the most vulnerable Americans in our society, and this administration has made it clear that it doesn’t care about those same rights.”
