Well, now I have seen it all.
There is a case up for the Supreme Court that is a very near and dear subject to two justices on either side of the aisle.
Because of that, it would more than likely result in an overturned precedent, quite possibly by a unanimous vote.
Yet, the Biden administration is hoping to have the case refused by the Supreme Court.
Only in Certain Cases
For all the take that Biden does about giving all races of people their due, it sure looks to me like he is now trying to keep his boot on the throat of the American Samoans.
Citizenship rights for American Samoans is a passionate subject for Justice Neil Gorsuch and Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
The case Fitisemanu v. U.S. could possibly overturn a long-standing precedent on this front, one that both justices have called racist in nature.
Yet, Justice Department Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar wants the court to say “no” to the case.
In a brief sent to the Supreme Court, she stated, “The government in no way relies on the indefensible and discredited aspects of the Insular Cases’ reasoning and rhetoric.
“This case would be an unsuitable vehicle for reexamining those cases.”
Neil Weare, president and founder of Equally American, ripped the administration for trying to sway the court.
He stated, “It is shocking that the Biden-Harris Administration and the Solicitor General continue to breathe life into the Insular Cases, which were grounded in a vision of white supremacy that has no place in our society, much less briefs filed by the U.S. Justice Department.”
This should all play out within the next few months, as we expect the court to announce its decision before the end of the year.
