Representing the 33rd District of Texas

Veasey Statement on President Trump's Supreme Court Nomination

Feb 1, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33, released the following statement after President Trump announced Tenth Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch as his Supreme Court nominee to serve as the next Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:

“One of the President’s most impactful decisions is their nomination of a qualified judge to the Supreme Court. President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch is a deeply troubling sign that he is unlikely to rule in favor of workers' rights or rule of law as it relates to government agencies’ ability create regulations that will protect the rights and safety of all Americans. His hostility toward women’s ability to access reproductive health care as witnessed in a previous lower court decision in the Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius case threatens the equal protection of women under the law.”
