President Trump sparked a frantic response from advocates and scholars this week when he announced that he could terminate birthright citizenship for children of undocumented parents with an executive order. The bulk of that response has focused on the question of what the Constitution means with respect to birthright citizenship. The other question raised by Trump's assertion is structural: who gets to decide what the Constitution means with respect to birthright citizenship?

Lost in Translation: Colorado’s Supreme Court Overlooking the Requirement of a Knowing and Intelligent Miranda Rights Waiver [People v. Nguyen, 406 P.3d 836 (Colo. 2017)]

Benjamin Donovan | November 15, 2018 | Read this comment

Summary: In a 4-3 opinion, the Colorado Supreme Court reversed the district court’s suppression order, holding the interpreter adequately conveyed the defendant’s Miranda rights to him. In so ruling, the majority failed to examine the totality of the circumstances to determine if the defendant adequately understood his rights before concluding the defendant’s waiver was knowing and intelligent.
