Peter F. Asaad mentioned in article “Colleges Deplore Trump’s Threat to DACA. How Far Can They Go to Fight It?”

The Chronicle of Higher Education

Below is an excerpt:

Peter F. Asaad, an immigration lawyer, also drew parallels between the DACA rollback and the Trump administration’s prior move to bar entry into the United States to people from several Muslim-majority countries. It’s not just that colleges in both cases reacted strongly to the news, he said; they also have standing to sue the administration.

"If you look at the Muslim travel ban and the lawsuit that succeeded," he said, "the basis for that lawsuit was with universities and the way that universities had expressed harm that was inflicted upon them through the travel ban."
