9th Circuit says judge overreached in immigration checkpoint case

February 14, 2018, Daily Journal

Winslow Taub is quoted in a Daily Journal article regarding a recent 9th Circuit decision stating that a district court judge gave too much deference to the Department of Homeland Security and didn't give proper judicial weight to the First Amendment in a case in which the government forced protestors to stay away from an immigration checkpoint in Arizona. According to Taub, who represents the plaintiffs, "When the First Amendment rights are being deprived, you have to look very closely at the facts. You can’t exclude people from a large area based on a general statement about safety or law enforcement needs."
