The US Court of International Trade on Monday upheld the Trump administration's tariffs on imported steel for national security reasons.
The decision imposing tariffs was challenged by the American Institute for International Steel (AIIS), a group of steel importers, as unconstitutional. Specifically, they claimed that Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 violates a constitutional prohibition against transfer of powers.
