Court Rules Harvard Can Discriminate in the Name of Increasing Diversity (Constitution news round-up)
14A: federal judge rules it is permissible for Harvard to discriminate against qualified Asian applicants in the name of increasing diversity.
1A: New York City Human Rights Commission bans the term “illegal alien” (blatantly unconstitutional)
Indefinite Detention: federal judge blocks Trump administration’s attempt to end the Flores agreement and institute longer detention of illegal alien families with children
Impeachment: it’s amusing to hear people who don’t care a whit about the Constitution cite the Constitution in their impeachment arguments - they’re so transparent. E.g.:
1A: The fight is on to force Catholic hospitals to perform sex change operations in California
1A: House Dems may seek legislation to strip tax-exempt status from SPLC-designated ‘hate groups’
Due Process: Mississippi city argues in court illegal aliens have no constitutional rights. (Sorry, but this is a losing argument; 5A/14A due process clauses cover ‘persons’, not just citizens)
14A Due Process: see if you can decipher what constitutes an ‘undue burden’ on abortion rights after federal judge upholds 2 Virginia abortion restrictions and knocks down 2 others. #CrazyQuilt
Preemption: D.C. Circuit panel upholds FCC decision to rescind net neutrality rule, but leaves states free to adopt their own rules
Due Process Right to a Fair Trial: Supreme Court to hear arguments in case limiting insanity; implications for other situations where the definition of ‘crime’ is important
Kudos! To the 5-year-old boy so upset by American flag touching the ground he recites the Pledge of Allegiance (captured on doorbell camera)
