A Far-Right Court
With two Trump justices sitting on the Supreme Court, our basic rights and liberties—and our democracy—are at stake. There are several cases in the 2018-2019 term already on the Court’s docket that offer this narrow-minded elitist majority on the Court the opportunity to impose their far-right ideology on the nation:
- Nielsen v. Preap could determine whether thousands of immigrants who are long-time documented residents could face indefinite detention without a hearing.
- Weyerhaeuser v. Fish and Wildlife Service could weaken federal protections for endangered species – and undermine countless federal laws protecting individuals from unbridled corporate power.
- Gundy v. United States could undermine over 80 years of precedent to revive a long-dormant doctrine that would decimate federal agencies’ ability to regulate.
