On June 15, the Supreme Court ruled that Title VII forbids workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The ruling was based on the meaning of “discrimination on the basis of sex” in existing federal law. Justice Gorsuch wrote both opinions, and was joined by Justices Roberts, Ginsburg, Sotomayor, Breyer, and Kagan in the majority. Justices Alito, Thomas, and Kavanaugh dissented. In the realm of immigration, this ruling could affect and protect both immigrant and nonimmigrant workers from discrimination.
