Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer accused the Supreme Court of becoming increasingly political, and helping the “hard right” meet its goals, The Hill is reporting.
"Anyone watching the bench at the moment ought to be shaking their heads at the political polarization of the court," Schumer, D-NY, said.
"The (Chief Justice John) Roberts court has affirmed a plainly discriminatory travel ban, unleashed a flood of dark unlimited money in our politics, and has scrapped a key pillar of the Voting Rights Act.”
"All goals of the hard right, all that have little to do with the Constitution or reading the law, all making America a more polarized, economically divided country."
The court ruled Wednesday that government workers can't be required to contribute to labor unions that represent them in collective bargaining.
A day earlier the court had upheld President Donald Trump's ban on travel from several mostly Muslim nations.
