For President Trump, the nomination of excellent judges continues to be one of his top priorities.
In fact, the President came out of the gates fast in 2019 by re-nominating 51 federal judicial nominees that had been stalled by the previous Congress.
And this comes at a critical time, especially now that there close to 150 empty judges’ chairs across our federal judiciary.
Today, we have more federal judicial vacancies than when President Trump took office!
So when you do the math, the President’s most recent “wave” of judicial nominations would essentially take care of about one-third of all current vacancies.
And right now, you can help President Trump continue his record-setting achievements.
By signing the petition below, you can tell the U.S. Senate to “get it done,” clear the backlog and confirm more of President Trump’s nominees.
Add your name today! Join First Liberty and millions of Americans who want to see more excellent judges seated in our courts!
Letter to Sen. Mitch McConnell & the U.S. Senate
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.
