Neil Gorsuch Is Everything Liberals Feared—and More


Neil Gorsuch Is Everything Liberals Feared—and More:

“When Trump first nominated Gorsuch, I was relieved he hadn’t picked an outright lunatic, and I felt cautiously optimistic that Gorsuch might be less of a hard-line conservative than liberals believed. I was wrong. Gorsuch is the worst kind of justice. He is a reactionary who dresses up his cruel, antediluvian views in folksy charm; who professes restraint while espousing extreme, sweeping views; who has no sympathy for vulnerable minorities but believes Christians are being oppressed. And he will guide the course of the law for the next 30 years or more. He is a catastrophe for proponents of civil rights and equal justice. And his influence over the court only stands to grow… This country is in terrible trouble.

Following in the Senate’s footsteps, the House is now bypassing legislative procedure norms to push partisan bills through Congress faster (this is the Pandora’s Box TrumpCare opened). Two House bills, H.R. 3003 the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act and H.R. 3004 Kate’s Law, are scheduled for a vote on the House floor THIS WEEK, even though neither bill has undergone typical committee hearings, debate, or amendment process. 

The bills themselves are also controversial, effectively serving as attacks on sanctuary cities. Kate’s Law increases the minimum penalties for any immigrant who attempts to re-enter the US after being deported. Written in reaction to the death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco, the bill feeds off of the fear of illegal immigrants even though studies show immigrants are far less likely to commit crimes than those born in the US. The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act takes aim at sanctuary cities themselves, overriding their local detention policies and barring them from receiving Homeland Security and Justice Dept. grants if they don’t comply. Together, these bills would increase our already sky-high prison population as well as the fear level within our immigrant communities.

Another thing to call your Senators/Reps about. Do it.
