Texas v. United States (The Supremes Weigh In)

January 24, 2016

Supreme Court

As we pointed out last week, the Supreme Court has decided to weigh the merits of the President’s executive actions on immigration. One of the most interesting analyses on this subject comes by way of Constitutional law professor Josh Blackman, who accurately points out that this case is unique in that it is the only time SCOTUS has asked the White House whether it is upholding its oath to faithfully execute the law.

You can read Mr. Blackman’s essay-which delineates the importance of this case, not simply with regard to immigration, but to the separation of powers and Constitutional law-on National Review. We’d also highly recommend reading Jon Feere’s backgrounder on Texas vs. United States, which outlines the arguments being made by both parties to this historic case.
