The Supreme Court announced today two decisions with Texas ties – one upholding a race-conscious admissions program at the University of Texas and another blocking an Obama administration plan to allow the undocumented parents of American citizens to avoid deportation. This hour, guest host Lauren Silverman will discuss the decisions with SMU professor of law Lackland Bloom. And later in the show, we’ll preview the court’s upcoming decision concerning restrictive abortion laws in Texas with SMU associate professor of law Jessica Dixon Weaver.
