Will the US Senate vote for Trump's Supreme Court nominee?

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Judge Brett Kavanaugh his Supreme Court nominee

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Judge Brett Kavanaugh his Supreme Court nominee

They say Trump's trying to tilt the nine justices in the highest court in the land towards the conservative right.

Kavanaugh also ruled that there was no "right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand", although he based his decision in part on the theory that the delay in obtaining an abortion didn't constitute an "undue burden" whereas his colleague Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson recognized the illegal immigrant had no right to abortion at all.

But one of their prime targets, Sen. But if Kavanaugh is Trump's choice, he likely would step away from pending cases.

The majority of the D.C. Circuit panel disagreed with that reasoning, noting that the Supreme Court had ruled in a 1984 case that undocumented workers were indeed employees for the purposes of collective bargaining law. "But Kennedy, in leaving the impression with Trump that Kavanaugh would be a great candidate for the job, helped the president make up his mind". "A judge must interpret statues as written, and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent". I will conduct a careful, thorough vetting of the president's nominee to the Supreme Court, as I have done with the five previous Supreme Court justices whom I have considered.

The AFL-CIO labor federation and several unions came out strongly against Kavanaugh's nomination.

Top contenders had included federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, and Thomas Hardiman. Kavanaugh served in the Bush administration, including as the president's staff secretary. But his supporters have cited his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

Charles Schumer, who called him the "right-wing" force behind President Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

Trump published a similar list during the 2016 campaign, and it was widely credited with helping him win the votes of social conservatives who otherwise might have been skeptical of a thrice-married billionaire from NY. "He didn't limit himself to what's constitutional", Warren said.

Murkowski and Collins have been the focus of a concentrated campaign against Kavanaugh by liberal groups and affiliated Democrats.

Jones was among the Democratic lawmakers invited to the announcement at the White House but did not attend. Democrats who were invited but declined included Sens.

Republicans will target three Democrats facing re-election in conservative states where Trump won big majorities in the 2016 election - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of in - to support Kavanaugh.

Given Kavanaugh's conservative bent, many Democrats are up in arms about the future of Obamacare should the judge be confirmed.

Democrats are specifically targeting two pro-choice Republicans, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. He was then sworn in by Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2006, according to the Associated Press.

Kavanaugh, a conservative appeals court judge, did not respond to questions.

In the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Robert Aderholt - the dean of Alabama congressmen in the lower chamber - urged the Senate to quickly confirm Kavanaugh.

Richard Primus, the Theodore J. St. Antoine Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of MI, said absent an unexpected change in the composition of the Senate or a scandal, it's likely Kavanaugh will be confirmed despite any Democratic opposition.

Alabamians will be hearing a lot about Kavanaugh in the coming days. He has an egregious record of undermining a woman's right to make her own health care decisions - from stopping a woman from accessing an abortion to allowing a woman's boss to deny her birth control coverage.

Bidwill, who serves as the Cardinals' president, organized his fellow alumni to sign a letter backing Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

"We look forward to the confirmation process and it will unfold in the next few weeks", said Sen.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight.

Sen. Angus King (I): "It's troubling that the president's search for a potential Supreme Court justice seemed to start and end with a list of names supplied by an outside group". Chuck Schumer and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Here's everything you need to know about him! Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has promised to push for confirmation with similar speed.

Some of the protesters got on 5th Ave. and laid down on the roadway in front of Trump Tower.

And Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to oppose President Donald Trump's nominee with 'everything I've got'.

Additionally, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) did not offer a statement Monday night as to whether it would oppose Kavanaugh's nomination.
