SCOTUS Decision Praised By Florida’s AG

( – The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) handed down several major decisions during the last week of June, prompting outrage from the Democrats and praise from the Republicans. One controversial decision slapped down President Biden’s effort to unilaterally forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt held by Americans, with Chief Justice John Roberts using Democrat California Representative Nancy Pelosi’s own words about the debt forgiveness in his majority opinion. Then-House Speaker Pelosi told the press in July 2021 that President Biden does not have the authority to simply forgive the debt, as “That would have to be an act of Congress.”

Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody applauded the Court’s decision, while also expressing her disbelief that something that was so obviously unconstitutional had to be taken to the highest court in the land to be properly scrutinized. In an interview with Fox News, Moody discussed the separation of powers, chiding President Biden for overstepping the powers of the executive branch. She noted the hypocrisy of President Biden’s claim that he would be helping Americans who are struggling, when the debt relief would “push all this debt, all this expense, 400 billion, onto hardworking Americans.”

AG Moody also spoke about the affirmative action ruling from SCOTUS, detailing the Florida laws that are already in place to prevent race-based admittance into universities, but praised the decision as it will force other states to consider applicants based on merit rather than skin color. Moody has worked to rein in actions from the Biden administration, especially when it comes to the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) policies for illegal immigrants entering the country. She sued the administration in May for a new rule that would allow most migrants to be released into the country on a parole program without giving out court dates. A judge halted the rule, handing Moody a victory in the battle against what she believed were unconstitutional actions by DHS.
