We have more good news coming out of the department of justice. A good example why we need Jeff Sessions.
It’s time for universities and industries to hire based on talent and achievements. No more affirmative action.
The Daily Caller:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is preparing a concerted campaign against affirmative action policies in higher education, The New York Times has learned.
The Times obtained an internal announcement circulated within DOJ’s civil rights division, a department unit which enforces federal anti-discrimination laws, soliciting interest in “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”
The report claims that the purpose of the effort is to identify and litigate against policies which disadvantage white applicants. However, the Times’ report does not identify those sections of the document which evince interest in protecting white students.
Policies that disadvantage white students? And the DOJ is trying to change that? You can expect the left and the communists to go crazy!
The Daily Caller:
Indeed, such a tactic is at odds with the strategies employed by anti-affirmative action groups that are currently fight race-conscious admissions policies in court.
Groups such as Students for Fair Admissions have sued institutions of higher education, including Harvard University and the University of Texas, on the basis of discrimination against Asian applicants.
But these policies also disadvantage Asian students. This should be an interesting case to keep an eye on. This will be a small step in the right direction.
This is more evidence that Jeff Sessions is doing his job and fighting the good fight. I really hope he will remain in the administration.
