WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday appeared sympathetic toward a bid by President Donald Trump’s administration to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, a plan opponents have called a Republican effort to deter immigrants from taking part in the population count.
This was already a big week for immigration law at the Supreme Court, and it could get even bigger.
It’s conceivable that Trump is hoping his boy Gorsuch will welcome the opportunity to expand corporate “religious freedom” to all corporations, whether said religious views are sincerely held, or merely more profitable. But if we go with the existing jurisprudence of the Supreme Court, this element of the Executive Order will fail.
Republicans in Texas keep trying to find new ways to rig the electoral system, but the courts are on to them.
A ruling for theocracy will effectively demolish church-state separation and neuter the First Amendment’s religious clauses.
Merkley's decision to hold the floor over the Gorsuch nomination comes as Republicans plan to hold a vote to change the Senate rules.
"At this point, I don't believe there are eight Democrats supporting Judge Gorsuch," said Dick Durbin
“We declare the reversal of the decree of ’73, Roe v Wade … We declare the reversal of Roe v. Wade. The powers of Nazgul, witchcraft and death are being reversed now over this nation.”
Petitioners say: "As the leaders of the free world, we cannot allow an adversary to invade our territory and subvert our republican form of government."
“Gorsuch is an ideological warrior who puts his own right-wing politics above the Constitution, the law and the rights of everyday people."
Gorsuch wasn't only the most conservative of Trump's two remaining frontrunners; he's also to the right of Justice Samuel Alito and late Justice Antonin Scalia
Justice has not only been denied to a worthy Supreme Court nominee and the work of the high court. It continues to be denied to the American people.
If anyone in America warrants having their citizenship revoked, it is Donald Trump; but like all Americans who aren’t naturalized, once a always a citizen, and it is too bad in Trump’s case.
On Friday, the Supreme Court decided to weigh in on transgender rights in the case of Gloucester County School Board vs. G.G.
Not even an overwhelming victory by Hillary Clinton is likely to convince Republicans that they should do their job.
92 percent of Americans support expanded background checks and 85 percent support preventing people on watch lists from buying guns; Republicans disagree.
In a day littered with bad news when it comes to gun legislation, there is one silver lining: The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear challenges to assault weapons bans enacted in Connecticut and New York.
The Scalia-less Supreme Court rejected racist Republicans' gerrymandering and employers who think discriminating on the basis of race is constitutional.
Perhaps a better name for it would be simply, "The United States Constitution." It's the one they've all sworn to uphold, after all.
