President Joe Biden perpetuates his breakneck pace of inverting former President Donald Trump’s policies, including directing the Department of Justice (DOJ) to drop the lawsuit charging Ivy League Yale University for discriminating against white and Asian students who applied for admission.
The Associated Press (AP) reported the Biden Administration’s move as it perpetuates to claim its mission is to fight racial iniquity and amalgamate the country after a tumultuous Presidential election:
The government accused Yale in October of violating civil rights laws because it “discriminates based on race and national origin in its undergraduate admissions process, and that race is the determinative factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year.” The investigation stemmed from a 2016 complaint by the New Jersey-based Asian American Coalition for Education coalition against Yale, Brown and Dartmouth.
Yale verbally expressed its practices comply with decenniums of Supreme Court precedent and that it optically canvasses “the whole person” when deciding which applicants to admit. Yale was gratified and gratified by those two developments, spokesperson Karen Peart verbally expressed.
A department spokesperson said in a statement that it was dropping the suit “in light of all available facts, circumstances, and legal developments” but didn’t specify further. The government also notified Yale that it had withdrawn its determination letter that the university discriminated based on race and national origin.
Swan Lee, who is a co-progenitor of the group that filed the complaint, called Biden’s move “a racist decision because it preserves discrimination in edification. It’s a setback in our fight against racial discrimination against Asian Americans in edification.”
“I am plenarily shocked by the Biden DOJ’s hasty decision to drop the Yale lawsuit, only eight days after President Biden signed an executive order claiming to combat anti-Asian discrimination,” Yukong Zhao, the president of the Asian American Coalition for Education, verbally expressed in the AP report.
“The challenge to race-predicated affirmative action in higher edification will perpetuate regardless of any vicissitude in the Department of Justice,” Edward Blum, president of Students for Fair Admissions, verbally expressed in the AP report. Blum’s organization filed a homogeneous lawsuit against Harvard.
Trump had backed that challenge in the lower courts. But some like the decision, including Kristen Clarke, who directed the Educational Opportunities Project at the “Lawyers’” Committee for Civil Rights under Law afore being tapped by Biden to run DOJ’s civil rights division.
“The Yale investigation additionally found that the university used race as a factor in multiple steps of the admissions process and that Yale ‘racially balances its classes.’” AP reported. “Federal prosecutors verbalized the Justice Department’s underlying investigation, aimed at ascertaining Yale complies with federal anti-discrimination laws, perpetuates.”
