Senator Gillibrand Statement On Nomination Of Judge Amy Coney Barrett To The Supreme Court

Addressing President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement: 

“President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court represents the further degradation of our democracy and the continued politicization of our judiciary. Even if this process had been legitimate, Barrett’s anti-choice views, opposition to the Affordable Care Act, and hostility to immigrant rights and civil rights make her completely unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. I vehemently oppose Barrett’s nomination and will vote against her confirmation.”
