The Solicitor General of the United States, Donald Verrilli, participated in oral argument in support of UT and its admissions policy. In the following clip, the solicitor general tries to explain to the justices why diversity is important from a military standpoint. But Justice Alito once again tries to mischaracterize UT and the government’s arguments about diversity as suggesting that they believe TTP minority admits are deficient. The real deficiency here, as General Verrilli explains, is Justice Alito’s one-dimensional views on diversity and a lack of understanding of the panoply of benefits diversity provides to everyone.
