U.S. Must Keep DACA and Accept New Applications, Federal Judge Rules

U.S. Must Keep DACA and Accept New Applications, Federal Judge Rules

April 25, 2018

In the biggest setback yet for the Trump administration in its attempt to end a program that shields some undocumented young adults from deportation, a federal judge ruled Tuesday that the protections must stay in place and that the government must resume accepting new applications. Judge John D. Bates of Federal District Court for the District of Columbia said that the administration’s decision to terminate the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, was based on the “virtually unexplained” grounds that the program was “unlawful.”

Supreme Court to Consider Trump’s Travel Ban and the President’s Authority

Supreme Court to Consider Trump’s Travel Ban and the President’s Au...

April 25, 2018

The Supreme Court for the first time Wednesday began considering a major initiative of the Trump administration, asking skeptical questions of both sides on whether President Trump’s travel ban is a necessary step to protect the country from terrorism, or an illegal and unconstitutional fulfillment of campaign promises to ban Muslim immigrants.  Lower courts have struck down each of the three iterations of the president’s proclamation, the first of which was issued just a week after he took office in January 2017. But the conservative-leaning Supreme Court may be Trump’s best hope, and it gave the administration a boost by allowing the ban to go into effect in December while considering the challenges to it.

College Basketball Panel to NCAA: Increase Penalties for Rule-Breakers, End One-and-Done

College Basketball Panel to NCAA: Increase Penalties for Rule-Break...

April 25, 2018

The NCAA commission on college basketball on Wednesday recommended increased penalties for rule-breakers and more transparency from apparel companies. It also called for the NBA and its players association to allow players to enter the draft out of high school. The current rule requires players to be 19 years old or a year out of high school. But the commission stopped short of recommending the NCAA find a way to allow its star attractions, the players, to share more of the revenue they help create.

In a late-night tweetstorm, Randa Jarrar taunted the chorus of people demanding that she be fired from her tenured position at California State University at Fresno after she called the recently deceased Barbara Bush “an amazing racist” and exulted, “I’m happy the witch is dead.”  School officials said they were reviewing the tenured professor’s position, and Castro rebuked Jarrar, saying her remarks left him “shocked, upset, appalled just like everybody else.”  On Tuesday, Castro announced what the university would do about Jarrar’s words: Nothing.
