Santa Clara Law Professor Pratheepan Gulasekaram explored the historical and current dynamics of regulating gun control in “Ameriguns,” a Q & A featured in Illuminate, Santa Clara University’s thought leader blog, which features an array of articles from alumni, faculty, and staff who are experts in their fields and offer a unique point of view. Gulasekaram is co-author of Immigration & Citizenship: Process and Policy (West Academic 9th Ed. 2021), which is the leading immigration law casebook used in law schools. His 2015 book, The New Immigration Federalism, provides an in-depth empirical and theoretical analysis of the resurgence of state and local immigration lawmaking. His research focuses primarily on the constitutional rights of noncitizens and federalism concerns in immigration law. He has also extensively explored the relationship between the Second Amendment and immigrants, as a way of understanding constitutional protections for noncitizens. In addition to his scholarly publications, Professor Gulasekaram frequently comments on constitutional and immigration developments for media outlets, and contributes opinion pieces for the L.A. Times, The Washington Post, and blogs for various national outlets.
