Oct 25, 2020

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema issued the following statement:
“It is the duty of all federal judges to consistently apply the Constitution and laws to protect the fundamental rights of all Americans. After watching the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings, reading Judge Barrett’s legal opinions and scholarly writings, and speaking with her directly, I am concerned about Judge Barrett’s inconsistent views on legal precedent, and how those inconsistencies impact her obligation to interpret and uphold the rule of law.”
