David Weber on Athletes & Immigration Law

Ipse Dixit

In this episode, David P. Weber, Professor of Law at Creighton University School of Law, discusses his article "Athletes in Transit: Why the Game is Different in Sports and the Visas Should be Too," which will be published in the Tulane Law Review. Weber begins by noting the scholarly consensus that immigration is generally a net positive to the national economy, and observes that this is especially true in the case of immigrant athletes, but is often frustrated by the immigration laws. He explains that there are many different visas that professional and amateur athletes can use to immigrate to or visit the United States, but that they all have problems. Among other things, they are excessively subjective, unpredictable, and unfair. He argues for reform, both by rolling back current procedure and by liberalizing athlete visas. Weber is on Twitter at @DavidPWeber.This episode was hosted by Brian L. Frye, Spears-Gilbert Professor of Law at the University of Kentucky College of Law. Frye is on Twitter at @brianlfrye.
