STATEMENT ON FINAL CONFIRMATION TO THE SUPREME COURT OF NEIL GORSUCH
Mark Gonzales, Founder and Executive Director of the Hispanic Action Network:
The final confirmation today of Judge Neil Gorsuch will likely be a victory for the Church for decades to come, and a triumph for the foundations of our religious freedom and certainly significant for the trajectory of our nation. I believe that Judge Gorsuch is a laudable successor to Judge Scalia who was a staunch protector of our U.S. Constitution. Although the Republican’s use of the controversial ‘Nuclear Option’ seems to be a turning point in the history of the Senate and future Supreme Court nominations, we consider this decisive move as a necessary step to move our nation forward. We anticipate that Judge Gorsuch will uphold our Constitution and protect our religious freedom – he certainly has a strong record of doing as such. We applaud President Trump for keeping his word in nominating a conservative Supreme Court Justice and we are optimistic about the future of our country as we go forth with biblical values here in our nation.
