Supreme Court expected to uphold Alabama congressional map in case favoring conservatives

The Supreme Court is expected to rule to uphold Alabama's congressional map in a move that will favor conservatives in upcoming elections.

The court argued that it plans to make a race-neutral decision regarding the case.

"In oral arguments, the newest Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson dominated the debate, persistently questioning Alabama Solicitor General Edmund LaCour's positions. She suggested black voters were being compacted into a single black-minority district," Fox News reported.

"Federal intervention happens when 'people are continuing to vote in racially blocked ways, but if that stopped happening, if what we all want, which would be people to spread out and live among one another and vote based on their, own views as opposed to along racial lines, then we wouldn't have a Section 2 violation. Is that correct?' Jackson said that was not what was happening in Alabama," the report added.

The decision could have far-reaching consequences in the state as the congressional map is rewritten each decade.

The new move also shows that Jackson plans to be a vocal part of the court, especially regarding matters of race.
