Monday Executive News Summary

Blockbuster abortion case in limbo, Biden border claim debunked, tax-hike roadblock, and more.

Top of the Fold

  • Supreme Court sits on potentially blockbuster abortion case (Examiner)

“The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, has been before the court since September without a word from the justices. It has been considered at the court’s conferences eight times and each time left on the table. That likely means that fewer than four justices so far have voted to take up the case. Another possibility is that the court has already rejected the case and one of the conservative justices is working on a dissent that will be released in one of the court’s orders list. … The case arose after Mississippi passed a 2018 law banning abortions after 15 weeks. Several lower courts found that the law was inconsistent with the Supreme Court’s rulings in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the two decisions that established the status quo on abortion law in the United States. … Even if the court ultimately rejects Dobbs … anti-abortion groups have an entire arsenal of other state bills that they plan to send its way.”

  • Border Patrol discredits Biden claim on unaccompanied minors (National Pulse)

“Customs and Border Protection officials revealed a 114 percent increase in apprehensions of unaccompanied minors along the U.S. southern border as ‘compared to the same time frame last year,’ debunking claims peddled by President Biden and the mainstream media that the current border surge is seasonal.”
