Latino Group: High Court Nominee Should Reflect Nation’s Diversity

WASHINGTON - The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund issued the following statement regarding the pending nomination of a new member of the U.S. Supreme Court:

 

With the retirement of Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens this summer, President Obama has a rare opportunity to once again nominate a candidate to the highest court of the land who could help shape the court’s rulings for decades to come.

“We urge President Obama to nominate a jurist in the tradition of Justice Sonia Sotomayor, someone who is a highly qualified, impeccable jurist and whose life history reflects America's growing diversity. The U.S. Supreme Court is much too important to do otherwise,” said Arturo Vargas, executive director of the NALEO Educational Fund.
