We Don’t Need a Trump Rubber Stamp.

We Don’t Need a Trump Rubber Stamp.

Take Action Now:

President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, could serve as a rubber stamp for Trump first, and a Justice for the people second. Call your Senators – (202) 224-3121 – and tell them to #StopGorsuch from filling the vacant seat on the Supreme Court.

Gorsuch: Rubber Stamp to Trump?

The U.S. Supreme Court needs Justices who do not serve as rubber stamps for anyone – especially the executive branch or special interests. As the nation has come to learn, Trump has no respect for an independent judiciary. In fact, Trump and his aides have attacked federal judges who have ruled against him.

Americans need independent judges who will be a check on President Trump – not judges who will simply serve as a “yes man” to the President or the administration.

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.

Gorsuch: Bias on the Bench?

U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch has shown that he would bring an extreme judicial philosophy to the Court with little regard to our country’s most marginalized communities. In fact, in his own words, he believes that judges should “strive… to apply the law as it is, focusing backward, not forward.”

Judge Gorsuch’s view of the Constitution is one that would indeed take our nation “backward” to an earlier era, when women, people of color, persons with disabilities, workers, LGBTQ Americans, and those interacting with the criminal justice system had fewer rights and legal protections.

Take Action: President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, could serve as a rubber stamp for Trump first, and a Justice for the people second. Call your Senators – (202) 224-3121 – and tell them to #StopGorsuch from filling the vacant seat on the Supreme Court.
