Trump Says He’s Releasing ‘New List’ Of Supreme Court Nominees By Sept. 1 Following Ruling on DACA

In a massively controversial decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Trump administration can’t immediately terminate the Obama-era Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

In a 5-4 ruling, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with Democrats and held that President Donald Trump can’t continue with his plan to end DACA, which has shielded roughly 800,000 young immigrants from deportation.

The opinion was written by Roberts and joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor — the Court’s four liberal justices.

The Obama-era DACA program has shielded just shy of a million children that came to the United States with their parents, who also did not have the legal right to enter the country.

Trump spoke about the ruling via Twitter and revealed plans to reveal a new list of Supreme Court nominees.

This is actually the second Supreme Court ruling this week that has not been favorable to conservatives.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are protected classes.

The decision essentially means it is against the law for employers to fire employees for reasons that are “protected.”

While Democrats cheered the decision, many conservatives saw it as a devastating loss in the culture war going on across the country.

Franklin Graham, an outspoken conservative pastor and son of evangelist Billy Graham, published a lengthy post on Facebook saying he believes the decision destroys religious freedom in America.

“Today the U.S. Supreme Court enacted a new law that adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the 1964 Civil Rights Act as ‘protected classes,” Graham wrote.

Graham continued, “As Justice Alito has pointed out, the majority went too far—he called it a “brazen abuse of our authority.” The Supreme Court exists to interpret the law, not to make new laws—making laws is the job of our representatives in Congress, elected by the people. I believe this decision erodes religious freedoms across this country.”

Graham said even if one’s religious beliefs are in the minority, the Constitution protects those rights.

“These are the freedoms our nation was founded on,” he asserted.

“The Supreme Court does not override and will never overturn the Word of God,” the faith leader asserted. “One day we will all have to stand before God, the Righteous Judge, whose decisions are not based on politics or the whims of culture. His laws are true and are the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

The other major topic this week has been several Democratic lawmakers and liberals ramming ahead with calls to “defund the police.”

The Supreme Court passed up at least seven cases on Monday regarding a legal doctrine that shields police and other public officials from lawsuits for conduct that does not involve a “clearly established” violation of the law.

The ruling comes as protests and riots have continued across the country following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month while in police custody.
