Paul Musgrave is co-author of an op-ed in the Washington Post about the President's recent announcement on birthright citizenship

Paul Musgrave, political science, is co-author of an op-ed about President Donald J. Trump’s recent announcement that he can end birthright citizenship by executive order, a view that is opposed as illegal by almost all legal scholars. Musgrave argues that Trump may know he lacks that power, but wants to shift the debate about who is and who isn’t a citizen. Musgrave is also cited in a news story for his view that Tom Clancy novels played a big role in how policy elites approached the end of the Cold War and the post-9/11 response to terrorism.
