The Trump administration last week endorsed the appeal of a federal judge’s decision that Harvard University’s consideration of race in admissions was legal.
But the brief filed is an indication of the arguments the administration will make, both on Harvard and on other universities.
The brief continues, “The evidence also showed that Harvard’s process has repeatedly penalized one particular racial group: Asian Americans.
Indeed, Harvard concedes that eliminating consideration of race would increase Asian-American admissions while decreasing those of Harvard’s favored racial groups.
A win for SFFA would be a loss to all Harvard students, regardless of their race, as the number of black and Latinx students would drop precipitously.”
