The U.S. Supreme Court needs a fair and independent justice – Not a Trump “rubber stamp.”


By announcing his pick of Judge Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, President Trump nominated an individual who would serve as his “rubber stamp” on a range of issues.


Gorsuch’s judicial philosophy is to challenge basic and well established principles of American law.


During his more than 10 years on the federal bench, Judge Gorsuch has proven to be a conservative ideologue who has expounded a judicial philosophy that would prevent the federal government from properly enforcing countless acts of Congress. He has shown that he is a judge who would bring an extreme judicial philosophy to the Court without regard to our country’s often marginalized communities. Research shows Judge Gorsuch is so far removed from the mainstream of legal thinking that he would support dismantling hard-won civil and human rights that Americans cherish.


The record is clear: Gorsuch’s interests are not the interests of everyday Americans.


Judge Gorsuch’s record shows a disregard for the ideal that the Constitution protects all Americans. His record of issues on discrimination and police brutality, as well as hostility towards women’s reproductive rights, raises significant concerns about his ability to be a fair-minded justice. His disagreement with those who have brought constitutional challenges to the courts on progressive issues, like LGBTQ equality, indicates that his judicial values are a threat to Americans’ civil and human rights.


It is essential that we have a fair and impartial Supreme Court to ensure that partisan politics do not impede upon equal justice under the law for all Americans. 

Take Action: Last night, 10th Circuit Court Judge Neil Gorsuch was nominated to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Gorsuch’s record does not demonstrate respect for our fundamental American values that guarantee every person equal justice under the law. Call your senators at (202) 224-3121 and express your opposition to Judge Neil Gorsuch today!
