WASHINGTON – Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s updated Supreme Court shortlist:

“Trump’s new Supreme Court shortlist is no different than his old one. Everyone on this list has passed Trump’s shameful litmus tests with demonstrated records against health care, women, LGBTQ people, people of color, and immigrants.

“Trump has threatened our country’s values and people with his intention to nominate more individuals who would decimate the Affordable Care Act and eviscerate Roe v. Wade. And his previous picks for the Supreme Court have confirmed our fears with their opinions on these important issues.

“This list does not reflect our values and puts our civil and human rights at risk. The Supreme Court is everyone’s court, not Trump’s court.”
