Joshua Geltzer was quoted in Legal Newsline about the amicus brief he and his colleagues at Georgetown Law filed in a Los Angeles court cautioning against the federal government's crackdown on sanctuary cities:

The 25-page amicus brief filed in a Los Angeles court Monday goes to the heart of the national "sanctuary city" debate, Joshua A. Geltzer, executive director and visiting law professor at Georgetown University's Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP), said during an email interview with Legal Newsline. "The brief aims to help those judges weighing sanctuary cities litigation to understand just how important it is to allow local law enforcement to set its own priorities and build its own relationships with communities," Geltzer said.
