Justices grant government’s stay request on “public charge” rule for Illinois

Last month the Supreme Court granted the federal government’s request for permission to enforce a rule known as the “public charge” rule, which prohibits noncitizens from receiving a green card if the government believes that they are likely to rely on public assistance. That ruling put on hold a pair of orders by a federal district court in New York, which had blocked the government from enforcing the rule anywhere in the nation. Tonight the justices, by a vote of 5-4, allowed the government to...

Adam Bonica is an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at Stanford University. Adam Chilton is a professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Maya Sen is a professor at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Each year, the Supreme Court justices and their clerks pore over thousands of certiorari petitions, but they only grant about 70 of those petitions for oral argument. Not only do the petitions that are granted go on to shape national disco...

Don’t Settle for Second Best

Philip Rieff, editor of the ten-volume Collected Works of Sigmund Freud, aptly refers to the great Viennese psychiatrist as “the champion of the second best”. Freud’s writings justify this less than flattering characterization. For example, in his Civilization and its Discontents, one of the most pessimistic books ever written, he states the following: “The service rendered by intoxicating media in the struggle for happiness and in keeping misery at a distance is so highly prized as a benefit t...

Are We Called to Perfection?

Jesus told His followers to “be perfect.”  Is that even possible? Gospel (Read Mt 5:38-48) In His extended teaching to His followers in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus called them to a remarkable way of life.  It is helpful to understand the historical context for this session on the mountain.  In the Old Testament, when Moses assembled the Israelites at Mt. Sinai after their deliverance from Egypt, God came down on the mountain to meet with them in a physical presence of fire, smoke, an...

Nasdaq.com: Reverse Mortgages are ‘Overhyped’

There are four “overhyped” investment strategies that retirees should avoid when trying to determine how to make ends meet in retirement, and among equity-indexed annuities, non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) and cash-value life insurance, reverse mortgages should be considered among the last options. This is according to Liz Weston, a certified financial planner and columnist at NerdWallet in a piece at Nasdaq.com. “[I]nvestments that are enthusiastically pushed by commission-e...

How academics can leave the university but stay in academia

When “quit lit,” the trend of disillusioned PhDs writing personal essays about their decision to leave academia, hit its peak around 2013, I was just finishing my own PhD coursework. It seemed that every day, as I revised my dissertation proposal and worked on recruiting potential field sites, there was another column about the scarcity of tenure-track jobs, the plight of adjunct faculty, the ostracism faced by people who went alt-ac—the chance that the light at the end of the tunnel just might ...

God Alone Satisfies Our Deepest Needs

“Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied” (John 14:8). God alone suffices, and all we need to possess him is to see him, because in seeing him, we see all his good­ness, as he himself explained to Moses: “I will make all my goodness pass before you” (Ex. 33:19). We see all that attracts our love, and we love him beyond all limits. Let us join St. Philip in saying with all our heart, “Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied.” He alone can fill all our emptiness, satis...

Your Father, Your Friend

I’m sure we’ve all heard by now about the death of Father Harkins, a young priest from Kansas City who committed suicide. The news deeply shook our Catholic community in St. Louis, particularly since Fr. Harkins had attended seminary here and was friends with priests in the area. There’s something shocking about a priest dying in such a way; it feels like a total defeat. And while in the case of Fr. Harkins the death appears to have been linked not to ongoing loneliness or depression so much as...

Argument preview: Calling (PLRA) strikes

In 1996, Congress passed the Prison Litigation Reform Act, which tightened up prisoners’ access to federal civil litigation in many ways. The statute was written hurriedly, and rarely does a year go by without a Supreme Court decision addressing some issue of its interpretation. This term’s case is about the PLRA’s “three strikes” provision, 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). Absent “imminent danger of serious physical injury,” the provision prevents prisoners from filing or appealing a federal civil action i...
