Re: Niels W. Frenzen

Neils W. Frenzen was quoted on California suing the Trump administration over a new rule that could deny green cards to immigrants who receive public assistance. “Beyond that, the likelihood of prevailing on the merits of one or more of the specific legal challenges is high, at least before the District Court and before the 9th Circuit. After that, we enter the more politicized world of the Supreme Court and what may happen becomes less clear,” said Frenzen, director of the USC Gould School of Law Immigration Clinic.
