#SupremelyExtreme: Filibuster Gorsuch
Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat on the United States Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch does not belong on the Supreme Court—and not just because Republicans stole this seat by refusing to hold a hearing (let alone a vote!) for Merrick Garland, President Obama’s supremely well qualified and moderate nominee. Judge Gorsuch is a staunch conservative out of step with the American people.
After a thorough review of his record, Alliance for Justice has concluded that Judge Gorsuch takes a dim view of immigrants’ legal claims in court. He has ruled against immigrants’ claims in agency proceedings, in their cases against law enforcement, and in other cases.
After a thorough review of his record, Alliance for Justice has concluded that Judge Gorsuch consistently favors corporations and employers over the everyday Americans who work for them.
After a thorough review of his record, Alliance for Justice concludes that Judge Neil Gorsuch consistently rules against rights and protections for person with disabilities.
After a thorough review of his record, Alliance for Justice has concluded that if confirmed to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch would systematically vote to roll back the hard-won advancement of women’s rights and freedoms.
After a thorough review of his record, Alliance for Justice has concluded that Judge Gorsuch has advanced an ultraconservative agenda that favors corporations and special interests at the expense of consumers.
A thorough review of his record shows that Judge Gorsuch’s view of the Constitution is one that would take our nation backward to an earlier era where LGBTQ Americans and others have fewer rights and legal protections.
Judge Gorsuch’s philosophy on environmental protections is squarely on the side of polluters versus safeguarding clean air and water. He has repeatedly turned away challenges by groups seeking to protect natural resources and would undermine agencies’ abilities to enforce our laws.
Judge Gorsuch’s views on criminal justice are harsh. He has often sided with police on excessive force claims, dismissed the harm caused by a botched execution, and repeatedly declined to hold government authorities accountable for improper searches of people and property.
The upcoming congressional recess is a big opportunity for local groups around the country to show their Members of Congress (MoCs) how serious they are about stopping the Trump agenda. To accomplish this, it’s helpful for to have a consistent message for their MoCs during town halls, district office meetings, and phone calls.
