Will our judiciary retain its independence and ensure that the rule of law applies even to this Administration?
At a time when a President calls judges with whom he disagrees “so-called” judges, we need our courts to continue to uphold the law.
The check provided by the courts against Trump’s unlawful Muslim ban is a reminder that we must have qualified, diverse and independent judges in federal courts throughout the country.
As a member of the Judiciary Committee, I fight for judges who will stand up for the rule of law.
