The motto of the United States Army Chaplain Corps is Pro Deo et Patria, Latin which means “For God and Country.” As the Army is the oldest branch of the U.S. military, that motto is significant, for the spirit and the meaning of that phrase is not only a part of the U.S. Army—it is foundational to our nation itself. As we celebrate Independence Day on July 4, 2020, we must remember the central backdrop of religion in the minds of our Founders and in the historical documents of our nation. For... read more

At the ACLJ, we have been periodically updating you on the work the U.S. Senate has been doing to confirm judges at quite a rapid pace . Last week, upon confirming Judge Cory Wilson to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit by a tight vote of 52-48, the Senate reached a judicial milestone in confirming the 200th Article III judge during the Trump Administration.

Yesterday, U.S. Supreme Court released an important ruling supporting school choice for parents. The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) had filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the case urging the High Court to uphold the school choice program at issue. In its 5-4 decision in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue , the Court declared: A State need not subsidize private education. But once a State decides to do so, it cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are... read more

As part of our ongoing Government Accountability Project , we recently released our Winter 2019 through Spring 2020 FOIA Report providing some updates on our ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and litigation. In response to troubling reports of Deep State activities, the ACLJ has utilized FOIA to request documents and records from federal government agencies with the intent of shedding light on the ongoing corruption and lawlessness. We’ve also engaged various state governments... read more

The latest Supreme Court ruling was a major victory for school choice and religious liberty. On today’s Jay Sekulow Live , we discussed the major victory for school choice at the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court, again, ruled in a 5-4 decision. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion for the Supreme Court, you could say, the right way.

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its ruling in the case of June Medical Services v. Russo . Splitting 5-4, the majority of Justices invalidated a Louisiana state requirement that abortionists have admitting privileges at a hospital. As we previously reported , the ACLJ had filed an amicus brief supporting the Louisiana law and attacking the myth that abortion is safer than childbirth. The law in question subjected abortionists to the hospital credentialing process and thus would help... read more

The Supreme Court ruled against life today. On today’s Jay Sekulow Live , we discussed the Supreme Court’s latest ruling against life. Chief Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote. In yet another 5-4 Supreme Court decision, the Supreme Court struck down a law that was similar to a Texas law that the court struck down in 2016. There was a major flip in one of the justices. That was the Chief Justice. When the similar Texas law which was actually broader, came before the Supreme Court, Chief... read more
