The conservative-majority Supreme Court is set to decide whether President Joe Biden is going to be able to go through with both his student loan forgiveness program, as well as with the immigration policy reforms that he was hoping to make.
Two years into Biden’s time in office, and the court has repeatedly had to block policies that the administration was trying to impose regarding immigration and several other matters. The most notable decision made by the Supreme Court in Biden’s term in office though was the overturning of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision which had granted abortion rights for close to five decades.
The tides are unlikely to change in 2023, with the 6-3 majority court looking to target many of those cases that would move the rule of law further to the right. Two of the biggest cases for the administration that the court is set to handle will examine whether Biden’s student loan forgiveness program will pass and whether Title 42, a Trump-era immigration policy will be allowed to expire. Both cases will be heard in February with the ruling being made by the end of June.
In the case of Title 42, the court has decided that the policy is going to remain in effect until a decision has been made by the Supreme Court. This decision was made only days before the policy was set to expire in December.
In October, an oral argument also showed that the conservative justices were considering putting an end to race being a consideration in college admission. This could weaken the landmark Voting Rights Act, which protects minority voters. This decision could also mark a setback for the administration’s agenda.
