The Senate Should Reject Cloture on D.C. Circuit Nominee Halligan

The Senate should reject cloture on D.C. Circuit Court nominee Caitlin Halligan.

Not only does she have no prior experience as a judge, Halligan is yet another judicial activist who makes up the law as she sees fit, making her unfit to serve on the bench.

In a brief filed on behalf of the abortion industry in one case, she supported applying racketeering laws against prolife activists for merely expressing their First Amendment rights.  Ironically, she sat on a committee that supported extending due process protections to non-citizens captured on the battlefield overseas in the prosecution of a war.

This sort of constitutional flexibility, which seeks to use the force of law to suppress political opponents and yet protect America’s enemies, is abhorrent to most Americans.  The Senate should reject cloture on Halligan.
