Supreme Court

The White House has been relatively tight-lipped about its deliberations, re: Antonin Scalia’s replacement, but we already know that his death will irrevocably impact a host of Supreme Court cases this term. One of the most consequential-as we’ve pointed out-is United States v. Texas, which will test the novel legal concept that the President is able to unilaterally create and interpret federal immigration law. Dan Stein, of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, has a brilliant analysis of this case-and its implications for the future of this country-on SCOTUSblog. It’s worth reading in its entirety, not only because of its insight but because of startling lack of information found in mainstream press coverage of this subject.
