Make A Call. Do Some Good: AAJC And NAPABA Support National Call-in Days To Urge Senate To Vote On Judicial Nominees

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

From the wire:

Call your senators toll-free at 1-866-338-5720 , and urge them to vote without delay on President Obama's judicial nominees.

AAJC and NAPABA are supporting a national call-in campaign to urge the Senate to vote on President Obama's judicial nominees. A diverse group of extremely qualified federal judicial nominees has been awaiting votes by the full Senate for an average of more than 100 days. Many of these individuals were approved unanimously by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Importantly for Asian Pacific Americans, Judge Jacqueline Nguyen (nominee for the Ninth Circuit), Miranda Du (nominee for the District Court of Nevada), and John Lee (nominee for the Northern District of Illinois) are all awaiting final confirmation votes by the full Senate.

The unprecedented delay in the Senate means that our system of justice has slowed down in some places to a near standstill. In addition, many of these federal court vacancies have led to judicial emergencies. This results in average Americans waiting months - and even years - for their day in court because there aren't enough judges to hear their cases.

Make your voice heard. We need your help now!
Call your senators at 1-866-338-5720 .

This week, beginning as early as March 14, the Senate could consider a number of President Obama's nominees. These votes are expected to include Miranda Du and John Lee. For far too long, these important votes have been delayed for no legitimate reasons. Senators must be told to end the obstruction and vote on these judicial nominees.

Your calls make a difference!

Senators on both sides of the aisle have to hear that these votes are important to their constituents. Please call now - make your voice heard and join thousands of others.
