Napolitano Predicts the Supreme Court Will Change the Affirmative Action Law
Today, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case about the University of Texas' use of race in college admissions.
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the significance of the case on today’s America Live, saying that the court will either uphold a 2003 Supreme Court decision permitting state-owned schools to consider race in their admissions policies or it will change the law.
Napolitano predicted that the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case in the first place indicates to him that they’ll change the law. “I think the majority of this court will say you can’t use race. You can’t use gender … you can’t use age, you can’t use race. These are immutable characteristics of birth and they have no place in our society for the state,” he said.
