Confirm Conservative Judicial Nominees!

The clock is ticking…and the time to confirm conservative judges to America’s federal courts could be running out.

Right now, First Liberty is taking a lead role to prompt the U.S. Senate to confirm more of President Trump’s nominees without unnecessary obstruction.

Already, First Liberty President and CEO, Kelly Shackelford, along with 12 other respected conservative legal firms, sent a letter urging the Senate to streamline its rules so that it can efficiently confirm more nominees – even several in a single day!

And we need YOU to join us in this effort.

Today, you must tell the Senate to “get it done,” clear the backlog and confirm more of President Trump’s nominees!

Sign the petition below to tell the Senate to get its act together before it’s too late.

Letter to Sen. Mitch McConnell & the U.S. Senate

First Liberty

The Honorable Mitch McConnell


The United States Senate

Thank you for your hard work so far in confirming a record number of judges to the federal judiciary.

However, there are still over 100 vacancies waiting to be filled and the confirmation process is taking too long to complete.

President Trump has nominated high quality judges who understand that the proper role of the courts is to interpret the law, not to legislate from the bench; this understanding is vital to preserving the principles and values enshrined in our Constitution.

Now is the time that the Senate can demonstrate leadership. By streamlining Senate rules and procedures, more of President Trump’s nominees can be confirmed without unnecessary obstruction.

I stand with First Liberty Institute in this effort, as this is a critical opportunity to ensure that Americans can enjoy the blessings of liberty and prosperity for generations to come. We respectfully ask that you make the confirmation process more efficient and speedily confirm all pending judicial nominees.

The Honorable (Senator’s Name)
1234 Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C.

Dear Senator (Name),
I’m writing to you today on a matter that is important to me as your constituent, and also vital for the nation. As you know, voters elected President Trump to appoint principled judges to the Supreme Court and the federal courts of appeal and district courts.

I am pleased with the fair and timely confirmation of Justice Gorsuch and would like to see more judges confirmed in a similar manner. At the beginning of his presidency, Donald Trump faced more vacancies for federal judgeships than Presidents Obama, George W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan. Due to more retirements and unnecessary delays in the Senate, there are now more judicial vacancies than the day President Trump was inaugurated. That is unacceptable.

There is one simple way to reform the judicial confirmation process and restore the constitutionally-mandated role of the Senate. The 30-hour debate rule should be repealed or replaced with a more reasonable limit (such as 8 hours) on debate before a vote. I support Senator Lankford’s proposal for revising the 30-hour debate rule. Please call upon Leader McConnell to change that practice immediately.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Each day these judicial vacancies aren’t filled, the backlog of cases grows. Justice delayed is justice denied.
