AILA Doc. No. 22022502 | Dated February 25, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC – AILA President Allen Orr welcomed the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court with the following statement:
“I am inspired and encouraged by President Biden keeping this promise and making history by nominating Judge Brown Jackson to take up the mantle of Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Brown Jackson is the first Black woman nominated to the Supreme Court, and one of very few nominees with any experience as a public defender. She is an individual who has not only developed a legal knowledge of immense depth and breadth, but someone who embodies the strength that comes through diversity and inclusion, something needed on the immigration judges’ bench as well. Her decision on the efforts of the Trump administration to expand ICE’s authority to fast-track deportations showed both empathy for real-life consequences and legal expertise. We all know the Supreme Court of the United States has a monumental responsibility and the decisions of the Court impact all of us, immigrant, non-immigrant, and citizen alike. I welcome this nomination and look forward to congratulating a new Supreme Court Justice Brown Jackson when the confirmation process ends.”
