Why is Trump’s nomination of Steven Menashi to one of the most powerful courts in the US so ‘outrageous’?

Anna Chu, of the National Women’s Law Centre, said: “Shame on those in congress who pushed this outrageous vote through. Menashi’s record of undermining the fundamental rights of women and communities of colour could now shape laws for decades to come.

“There’s no way that students, survivors, or anyone impacted by discrimination can trust that they would have a fair hearing in his court. We will continue to fight Trump’s persistent littering of the courts with extremist, bigoted judges. People across the country deserve better.”
