WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) released the following statement on the nomination by President Donald Trump of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the United States Supreme Court:
“Justice Kennedy was an outstanding man, and I have great respect for his career and years of service to this country. As a representative of the highest court in the nation, it is a Supreme Court justice’s duty to ensure that justice is served. As we look forward at Justice Kennedy’s replacement, I am hopeful that the President’s nominee will be able to proudly serve the American people in the same way.
Supreme Court justices are arbiters of the highest court in the land, and as citizens we rely on them to make decisions that reflect the meaning of the Constitution. Now, more than ever, we need a Supreme Court Justice who will rise above ideology and protect the rights of each and every individual in this country. It is now up to our colleagues in the Senate to decide whether or not this replacement is well fit for the American people. I congratulate Brett Kavanaugh on his nomination as the next Supreme Court Justice.”
