WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged the Senate to act quickly on confirming the 51 judges President Trump has re-nominated for the federal bench.
 
“Both in the 2016 and 2018 elections, the makeup of the courts has been a key motivating factor for voters. It will continue to be so in 2020. We thank the president and the Senate Republicans for the progress they have made in confirming pro-life judges throughout the federal court system. We urge them to continue this good work. We urge Senate Democrats to stop their un-American obstruction. And we urge voters to communicate with their senators about the need to confirm the president’s nominees swiftly and fairly.”
 
Among those the president nominated Wednesday was Neomi Rao, who would be a replacement for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and Bridget Bade and Eric Miller for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the most liberal-leaning court in the nation.
 
There are still 15 vacancies on the appellate courts and 149 vacancies in the lower federal courts.
 
“Because of the Democrats and their delaying tactics, there are now more judicial vacancies than when in 2017 when the president took office,” Father Pavone said. “This is unacceptable and must end immediately. It continues to be clear that Senate Democrats are more interested in playing partisan games than doing the work of the American people. At the same time, the President and the Republican Senate deserve great credit for having confirmed 85 federal judicial nominees in the Congress that just concluded. Let’s keep up the momentum!”
