Luján statement on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh

Today, Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) issued the following statement after the United States Senate voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“The Senate just confirmed a nominee who is unfit to sit on the highest court of the land. His judicial record makes it clear he will not stand up for the rights of women, environmental justice, and American workers. His most recent, troubling performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee further demonstrated that he does not have the temperament or impartiality to serve as a Supreme Court Justice. In addition, the way Senate Republicans and the Trump administration conducted the confirmation process, which included an incomplete FBI investigation into Dr. Blasey Ford’s serious allegations, was unacceptable. Our country deserves better. Despite Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, I will not stop fighting in Congress to protect people’s rights and civil liberties.”
