Judges on the Supreme Court are being impeached. A Republican leading the impeachment drive says it's about separation of powers. The judges overstepped their boundaries. The judicial branch has limits, and therefore others have the power to impeach the judges if necessary.
A group of 21 teenagers defeated the Trump administration’s attempt to keep a climate dispute out of court. The climate issue was brought to court despite the President’s reluctance to deal with it. The teenagers argued that climate change was their responsibility and that therefore their rights were violated by avoiding the issue. The judges sided against the executive branch. Now both sides have a voice in an important issue.
On March 6, the Trump Administration escalated its fight against sanctuary cities by filing a lawsuit against California’s sanctuary laws. This is Trump’s latest move in fighting against immigration. He stirred up a lot of controversy with the proposed ban against immigrants from Muslim-majority countries. Judges are being pressured to declare sanctuary city laws as unconstitutional. If so, sanctuary cities would be against the law and immigrants forced to leave or hide. Change moves slowly, and personally I think that’s a good thing. Finding the best solution is never fast and never easy.
President Trump is debating whether or not to veto a spending deal bill. The bill was proposed to prevent another government shutdown. The President has the power to veto bills suggested by Congress. I think both branches being able to veto makes sense. It’s a way of sharing equal power.
