4 of the BIGGEST Cases Facing the Supreme Court in 2020

The U.S. Supreme Court continues to resolve hotly disputed cases as the country struggles with perhaps its most substantial political divide since the Civil War.

Liberal extremists worked tirelessly during the Obama-Biden years to carve out exclusive rights for their constituents. In doing so, Democrats had asserted that LGBTQ community members enjoyed powerful interests over Christians Americans. Left-leaning states have also pushed cruel abortion-on-demand laws that entice doctors to deny life-saving care to babies “born alive” following botched procedures.

After President Donald Trump restored the conservative majority with the elevation of justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, rule of law and human decency have resulted in a re-emergence of religious liberties and family values. These are four of the watershed cases facing the high court in 2020.

1: The Fate of 700,000 Dreamers Hangs in the Balance

Congressional gridlock forced Obama to create the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to avert upwards of 700,000 people being unfairly deported. Knowing no other home but America, these young people were scurried across the border as minors and at no fault of their own. The law requires they be deported due to illegal status. Many believe Obama’s executive decision was, and remains, unconstitutional because it basically creates law denied to the executive branch.

Several state attorney generals approached President Trump letting him know they were prepared to proceed with lawsuits to end the program. The president, in turn, agreed to a stay while Congress resolved the issue. Democrats voted down measures that would have given these Dreamers permanent legal residency. The high court heard oral arguments on the matter in November, and the fate of 700,000 hangs in the balance.

Many legal insiders predict the DACA program will be struck down. They also anticipate the Supreme Court will include a nuance that gives Congress time to correct its recent Democrat members’ mistake. Others believe that Trump will intervene before the Dreamers can be deported. This may be the highest-stakes case outside of abortion in 2020. The case is called Department of Homeland Security, et al. v. Regents of the University of California.

2: Louisiana Abortion Law Challenge

Although a challenge brought to a similar Texas law resulted in a liberal win in 2016, the high court’s makeup has changed. In a 5-3 vote, moderate Justice Anthony Kennedy sided with the staunch liberal bloc. But with his retirement and President Trump placing Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on the bench, a Louisiana law requiring abortion clinics to have a doctor on staff who enjoys admitting privileges at a nearby hospital is likely to pass muster. In 2016, the ruling decried such practices as an “undue burden” on women seeking to abort their unborn child. Oral arguments are expected to be heard in early March, and this marks the first abortion-related case by the Trump appointments. The case is called June Medical Services v. Gee.

3: Scholarships Benefiting Religious Schools

Much to the chagrin of liberal justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, the majority handed religious institutions a major win in 2017 along similar lines. In Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Missouri v. Comer, the local government denied the institution a public grant to build a playscape. The recreational resource would be enjoyed by the community at large, as well as benefit the local children attending the church’s school.

“The exclusion of Trinity Lutheran from a public benefit for which it is otherwise qualified, solely because it is a church, is odious to our Constitution,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote, “and cannot stand.”

The Montana Supreme Court apparently decided not to apply that precedent and ruled in favor of secular rights over religious ones. It effectively invalidated scholarships that benefit religious schools and local children purely on that basis. Outraged parents who utilized their right to school choice brought Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, and the high court will hear arguments Jan. 22. Many expect the Trinity Church precedent and religious rights to prevail in this case.

4: President Trump’s Financial Records

The bad blood between the White House and congressional Democrats could result in a landmark ruling that defines where lines are drawn between the co-equal branches of government. Led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and California Rep. Adam Schiff, Democrats have launched relentless witch hunts and are clearly on a fishing expedition as they seek to access the president’s financial records.

Under no legal obligation, the president has declined to release tax returns and financial records knowing full well that liberal extremists would dox and harass his business associates. The House Oversight and Reform Committee issued subpoenas, and the high court is expected to decide where executive privilege ends and where partisan harassment begins. The rulings on three specific cases will likely go down as a defining moment in constitutional law history. They include Trump v. Mazars, Trump v. Vance, and Trump v. Deutsche Bank.

  1. I guess they thought the guns laws of New York aren’t important anymore? I do believe the issues on gun control, such as what the democrats are trying to do in Virginia and several democratic states need to be addressed in the near future. These people are going crazy with their attempts on striking down our 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms. If the laws the democratic governor and his legislature are forcing through the democratic controlled legislature are allowed to stand; this will most definitely bring civil war to this and other states run by democratic governors.

  2. Clyde, this was one person’s take on what would be IMPORTANT for the Supreme Court would have to tackle, but not the only things that they would take on, and I’m not sure they would take on all of these. I agree with you that the SC will have to take on Second Amendment issues as well as Immigration, sexual discrimination and other things. So relax; we never know what tomorrow might bring.

  3. I think the Supreme Court should declare the right for all US citizens should have the right to carry guns into any state they want to travel in to visit, if they have a gun carry permit, meaning they have gone thru a background check. this is the right of every citizen. I don’t think that a marriage is between a same sex couple either, it should be between a male and female as intended there has been to many thing changed in out country that has make our country great.
    Don’t keep let the people that has come in to our country keep changing our law and rules, need to go back to law and order follow rules, uncuff our law enforcers (Police and State Troopers)

  4. Hopefully RBG will die or retire during President Trump’s second term, allowing him to appoint two conservative judges like Amy Coney Barrett, then we will have a 7-2 majority and begin undoing 70 years of Socialism/Communism since 1952 with Ike and Earl Warren. When President Trump is re-elected in a landslide, the radical left will become violent and groups like BLM, Antifa, SCLC, DNC, et al will encourage race riots, food riots, strikes, and force Martial Law on our cities. It will make 1968 look like a cakewalk. The Second Civil War is inevitable!

  5. on the tax information: President Trump, or no one else, should have to give that information. it should not be considered

  6. I would use the TALKING POINTS during 2020 elections that it was the DEMOCRATS who voted down the MEASURES to allow these DREAMERS permanent legal residency. Tell the TRUTH like it is . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  7. OH I hope President TRUMP is winningly favored in cases
    TRUMPence our his US ReTRUMPlican Lawmakers 2016-2028 successfully US Landslide Reelected assuredly
    Amen & Amen

    • I think your tax records are private just like your medical records are private. Nobody should have to share that info unless they sign off to do so

  8. DREAMERS must all be ( including all family members) RETURNED TO PLACE OF ORIGIN
    all are ILLEGAL welfare parasites and a PRODUCT of the Illigimate Half-Breed “BOY” OBAMA

    Any law that is passed requiring guns to be registered exempts those that cannot legally own a gun. It violates their Constitutional right against self incrimination! So gun registration does absolutely nothing to stop criminals, in fact, it protects them!


  9. Dreamers are a good example how to break the law ! The illegals will just keep coming by trying to break in America ! If Dreamers remain its that simple ! Those illegals don’t respect our laws when they break in afterwards or they wouldn’t break in !

    • But these Dreamers, only broke one law.
      So it is said.
      If they work here, they need an ID card and social security card.
      That would be, either fraud, or identity theft.
      Either one, is a serious crime.

  10. President Trump isn’t releasing his tax returns solely on the fact that his business associates would be harassed by the biased and hateful Democrats! There is absolutely no reason why Congress needs these returns. Trump has improved our economy tremendously and is a brilliant financial genius. Great job President Trump! Now Democrats…move on and get some REAL work done!
