The Supreme Court has cleared the way for the Justice Department to carry out the first federal executions since 2003. The court also backed President Trump’s power to unilaterally fire the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. And the court upheld a law requiring foreign affiliates of U.S. organizations to explicitly oppose prostitution in order to qualify for U.S. foreign aid to fight HIV and AIDS. Public health advocates criticized the ruling, saying it will make it harder for sex workers to get crucial support to prevent the spread of HIV.
