US Supreme Court Upholds Trump's Travel Ban

Eastern, he will participate in a roundtable with supporters.

For years, he has infuriated conservatives with decisions striking down prayer at public school graduations and upholding abortion rights - and exasperated liberals with decisions on affirmative action and campaign finance laws. Now it appears that precedents on all of those issues could be imperiled. Crawford points out that he refused to overturn Roe v. Wade, and he also constrained the bolder conservatives on the court, pulling them back a little bit. Notably, the travel ban was one of US President Donald Trump's first official acts since taking office. "And that'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court".

Asked if he has thought about Senate nominees should Mike Lee be appointed to the court, Herbert said, "I don't have a short list". Such a dramatic step may not be immediately likely, but a more conservative court might be more willing to sustain abortion restrictions. Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas and Chief Justice William Rehnquist voted against Lawrence, and to the extent that Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch and Roberts seem to be more in the mold of these justices than of Kennedy and O'Connor, it is not hard to imagine a substantial revision in the court's gay-rights jurisprudence.

Republicans now have a razor-thin, two-vote margin in the Senate, and with Sen.

However, Obergefell noted that Trump often changes his mind.

There are a handful of these moderate Democrats to keep an eye on. Susan Collins, R-Maine.

Who Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
She campaigned on a progressive policy platform, endorsing initiatives such as Medicare-for-all and tuition-free public college. More than a feeble attempt to reach her constituents, Alexandria's background solidifies herself as a true people's politician.

Ginsburg was looking ahead to a Hillary Clinton presidency, but she acknowledged how different things would look for the court if Trump won. Both conservative and liberal interest groups are poised to press the fight. Trump has said he will pick his nominee from a list of 25 candidates, and Braden thinks many of those candidates haven't really dealt with gerrymandering before. Three Democrats in particular, Sens.

Trump and Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy in April. He sides with Trump slightly more than Sen. That puts remarkable power in the hands of a few moderate Republicans and conservative Democrats, a batch of which are on the ballot in November.

At the time, McConnell argued that the American people should have a say in the pick, and that the seat should remain vacant until after the 2016 presidential election. I told him that no one had ever done it before, but it was an interesting idea because it would tell people where the president stood on the issue of judicial selection.

All of these tweets played a central part in Sotomayor's opinion - that Trump's travel ban was not motivated by concerns about national security but rather by a racial bias.

Hundreds of thousands expected at D.C. immigration protest: Hundreds of thousands of people angry with the administration's immigration policies are expected to descend on Washington today in what activists expect to be a massive rally.

In a 5-4 decision in Abbott v Perez, the court ruled that the state of Texas was free to use redistricting maps that a lower court said was drawn to disenfranchise Hispanic and African American voters.
