The U.S. Supreme Court, on Monday, March 16, 2020, put off oral arguments scheduled for at least two weeks. Arguments were scheduled for March 23, March 25, and March 30 to April 1. Included in the cases were arguments on the President’s financial and tax records, deportation relief for unauthorized immigrants, the extent to which religious employers are exempt from anti-discrimination laws. It is unclear what will happen to arguments for May and June. The immigration case involves the deportation of a Mexican father seeking to remain in the U.S. after being convicted of using a fraudulent Social Security card to get a cleaning job. The Justice Department has argued it is a crime serious enough to deport the man. The oldest member of the Supreme Court is Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at 87.
