In the chorus of voices raising concerns about President Donald Trump’s attacks on the judges who halted his administration’s travel ban, an important one has been notably absent: Chief Justice John Roberts.
When he was on the Tenth Circuit, Judge Gorsuch ruled that a corporation could have religious rights. That same expansive view of religious freedom could prompt a Justice Gorsuch to void Trump’s travel ban.
Last week, the New York City Council introduced a bill to increase transparency and oversight over the NYPD’s use of sophisticated new surveillance technologies and information sharing networks. Rather than embrace a commitment to greater transparency and dialogue, the NYPD reacted to the POST Act with hyperbole and hysteria. Time for a fact check.
