The Trump Administration is rescinding Obama’s affirmative action policy that encouraged colleges to consider race during the admissions process. The Department of Justice (DoJ) said that the executive branch cannot circumvent Congress or the courts by creating guidance that goes beyond the law. The Supreme Court last ruled that affirmative action was constitutional in 2016, but it could be subject to challenges in the future. The rescission of the practice is in response to a discrimination lawsuit filed by Asians against Harvard University.
