Congressman Issa Statement on Nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to U.S. Supreme Court

On July 9 Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, released the following statement on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

“Brett Kavanaugh is an exemplary choice for the United States Supreme Court. He has shown unwavering support in defending the Constitution, our nation’s founding principles, and the rule of law. A renowned writer and thinker, Kavanaugh studies the law as originally intended, decides difficult cases impartially, and understands the Federal Government is a creature of the Constitution – and nothing else.

I am more than confident President Trump chose the right person to replace Justice Kennedy. I look forward to Kavanaugh’s service to our country for years to come. I call on my colleagues in the Senate to confirm him as expeditiously as possible. ”

Issa on Current Immigration Debate

On June 21 It’s nearly impossible to pass any immigration bill when one party categorically refuses to come to the table to talk. Yesterday, Democrats rejected a Presidential fix. Today, they rejected a permanent legislative one. At this stage House Democrats appear to be more committed to political grandstanding than they are to advancing meaningful, permanent solutions for our badly broken immigration system.

All parties agree the time to act is now, which is why I urge my colleagues to join us in crafting a solution that will address immediate needs and provide long-term solutions to our border security and legal immigration system. The House should remain in Washington until we get this urgent work done.
