Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a First Amendment challenge to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) regulations limiting how much non-profit organizations engaged in political activities could raise and spend, summary judgment for defendant-FEC is reversed where: 1) the regulations were not "closely drawn" to serve a cognizable anticorruption interest; and 2) the FEC lacked authority under the Federal Election Campaign Act to presume that any public communications that merely "refer" to a federal candidate necessarily seek to influence a federal election.
