A Far-Right Court
There are several cases in the 2019-2020 term on the Court’s docket that given Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh the opportunity to impose their far-right ideology on the nation:
- Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California; Trump v. NAACP and McAleenan v. Vidal would revoke DACA protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants.
- Bostock v. Clayton County; Altitude Express v. Zarda and R.G. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC all have an enormous impact on workplace discrimination against LGBTQ+ people.
- June Medical v. Gee challenges a Louisiana TRAP law (“targeted regulation of abortion providers”) nearly identical to 2016’s Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, where Justice Kennedy provided the fifth vote.
