Congressman Jodey Arrington applauded the United States Supreme Court decision on Thursday that found the consideration of race in college admissions unconstitutional. It was a 6-3 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that drew applause from conservatives while angering the left.

Arrington mentioned his time serving as the Vice Chancellor for Research and Commercialization for the Texas Tech University System during his statement on the Supreme Court's decision.

"As a former Vice Chancellor at the Texas Tech University System, I applaud this long-overdue decision by SCOTUS to stop the discriminatory practice of preferential treatment of students based on race. The 14th amendment of the Constitution clearly states – no one has the right to deny any American the right to equal protection under the law.

“Punishing or rewarding individuals based on immutable characteristics such as race or gender is unfair, unethical, and unconstitutional.

“Universities have an ethical responsibility and Constitutional duty to make admission decisions based on objective qualifications rather than the color of someone’s skin.”

Arrington has been traveling the 19th Congressional District in recent days with stops in Stamford, Lockney, Albany, and Crosby County.
