Democrats support U of M admissions policy
More than 100 House Democrats filed briefs
Thursday with the Supreme Court in support of the University of Michigan's affirmative action admissions policy.
Rep. Richard Gephardt, D-Mo., a graduate of Michigan's law school, criticized President Bush for opposing the policy. "I believe we must continue to work toward greater inclusiveness in higher education and reject the backward-looking policies of the Bush administration that would deny our nation's compelling interest in ensuring diversity," he said.
