Washington D.C. | On November 6th, President Trump held a press conference along with Senate leaders and top-level administration officials to provide an update on his administration’s record-setting progress in confirming excellent new judges to our federal courts. The number is now up to 157 judges confirmed, with more expected to pass confirmation this week.
Our own President, CEO and Chief Counsel Kelly Shackelford was in attendance at the event, and had the opportunity to provide a video update right outside the White House just moments after hearing from the President:
As an organization committed to defending religious freedom for all Americans, we are thrilled with the confirmation record of the President’s judicial nominees who are faithful to protecting our First Amendment rights.
But with a critical national election just one year away, we must maintain this momentum and maximize the opportunity we have right now to ensure our courts will be staunch defenders of religious freedom for generations to come.
That’s why the confirmation of conservative, constitution-friendly judges will continue to be our first priority here at First Liberty—and we invite you to join us in the fight.
