CU, CUF, TPC File Amicus Brief with Supreme Court on DACA

Citizens United, Citizens United Foundation and The Presidential Coalition have filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court urging the Justices to reverse three lower court decisions blocking the Trump Administration's efforts to end former President Barack Obama's DACA immigration order.  Our brief makes three main arguments: (1) The Trump Administration's decision to end DACA is not subject to judicial review; (2) the decision to end DACA was legal; and (3) DACA was unlawful from its inception, and even if DACA is not unlawful, the Trump Administration's decision to end DACA is lawful.  The Supreme Court is slated to hear argument in the case later this year or early next year with a decision expected by the end of June 2020.

CU and CUF File Census Amicus Brief

Department of Commerce v. New York

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with other conservative groups, urging the Supreme Court to lift a lower court injunction that prohibits the Commerce Department from including a U.S. citizenship question in the 2020 census. Our brief contends that distinguishing between U.S. citizens and those persons in the country who are not citizens is an important consideration in fulfilling the main purpose of the decennial census, which is to determine the proper apportionment of U.S. House of Representatives seats among the states. It closes with an impactful discussion of how opposition to the citizenship question is being driven by global elitists, deeply resentful of the election of Donald Trump in 2016, with a goal of skewing U.S. House of Representatives apportionment in favor of deeply blue states, as well as the accompanying allocation of electoral college votes in presidential elections, order to secure and retain political power in future elections. The brief concludes:

Globalization may be sought by many of our nation’s elites, but it is not the formula adopted by the framers. Our Constitution’s Preamble reminds us that it was “We the people” who united together to establish the Constitution in order to “secure the Blessings of Liberty” – not the act of citizens of the world to create a global community. James Madison cautioned us in Federalist 52 that it was absolutely “essential to liberty” to keep the “intimate” connection between the House of Representatives and American people, which requires distinguishing between those who are citizens members of the polity and those who are not.

Fox News: David Bossie: Nancy Pelosi takes the gavel in the House and what's her first target? Free speech

On Thursday, the 116th Congress began and San Francisco’s Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives once again.  Hopefully, she won’t revert to her old tricks by passing bills so the rest of us can find out what’s in them.

As the president of Citizens United, I know that every two years around this time the left ramps up its wrongheaded quest to gut the First Amendment and attack the landmark “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision that protects robust free speech rights for all of the American people. And this year is no exception, as House Democrats prepare to unveil H.R. 1 today.

A recent column in The New York Times entitled “After Citizens United, a Vicious Cycle of Corruption,” opens by stating, “In the eight years since it was decided, Citizens United has unleashed a wave of campaign spending that by any reasonable standard is extraordinarily corrupt.” An intriguing opening perhaps, but the entire opinion piece contains no evidence of corruption whatsoever. Liberals just can’t come to grips with the fact that spending a lot of money to participate in the political process doesn’t equal corruption.

Fox News: David Bossie: Hey, Mitt Romney -- Washington needs problem solvers, not headline grabbers

Mitt Romney is just like Hillary Clinton.  Six years later, he’s still upset that he’s not president.  So, instead of coming to Washington as a problem solver like he campaigned, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney chose to start his tenure as Utah’s junior United States Senator as part of the problem.

In the midst of a government shutdown over securing our border, Romney chose to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi by attacking President Donald Trump in an op-ed in The Washington Post instead of offering his opinion about how to solve our illegal immigration crisis and end the shutdown. Oh Mitt, why am I not surprised? This behavior is extremely disappointing coming from someone who was the Republican nominee for President in 2012. Romney should be helping President Trump, not trying out for CNN’s next anti-Trump Republican talking head.

First of all, why did Senator Romney choose the Washington Post for his op-ed? Why not choose a paper in Utah, the state that he represents? It’s because Romney is a swamp creature more concerned about raising his own national profile than representing the people of Utah.
