Help End the Partisan Blockade Against President Bush's Judicial Nominees: Liberals Target Miguel Estrada

The federal judiciary is mired in a crisis. Dockets are overloaded and longstanding vacancies at district and circuit court levels are going unfilled. Yet, rather than acting swiftly to fulfill their constitutional responsibility to the judicial confirmation process, Senate Democrats, led by Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), are employing "all means necessary" to obstruct and delay the confirmation of many of President George W. Bush's judicial nominees.

Schumer and Leahy's obstructionist tactics are now being leveled against Miguel Estrada, a nominee to fill a vacancy on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
