Abstract

Examines the case, Trump v. Hawaii in light of Justice Jackson’s view that a Court would go along with a President’s purposeful discrimination against a minority religion. This brief essay explains Trump using Jackson’s critique of judicial review in national-security cases. The Essay also uses Trump to examine a flaw—probably structural—in the constitutional theory of process jurisprudence.
