April 02, 2018

The New York Times, in its coverage of a Trump administration proposal to collect social media user information from visa applicants, featured the perspective of Professor Anil Kalhan.

The March 30 article noted that the proposal would affect nearly 15 million visa applicants each year, who be required to submit social media user names for the past five years.

The article cited a tweet Kalhan wrote on Twitter, calling the proposal “unnecessarily intrusive and beyond ridiculous.”

Kalhan, an authority on immigration law, is the chair of the New York City Bar Association’s International Human Rights Committee and of the Association of American Law Schools Immigration Law Section.
