Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Executive Session January 27, 2016
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"And just last week, the junior Senator from Georgia announced that he was withdrawing his support for the nomination of a Hispanic nominee to a Federal district court in Georgia. Judge Dax Lopez has served as a distinguished State court judge in DeKalb County, GA, since 2010. With his experience, I was not surprised that the Georgia Senators submitted Judge Lopez’s name to the White House for consideration to the Federal district court. After recommending him to the White House, it is unfortunate that the junior Senator from Georgia is now blocking his nomination because of Judge Lopez’s membership on the board of directors for the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. This nonpartisan organization’s mission “is to increase civic engagement and leadership of the Latino/Hispanic community across Georgia.” But some conservatives have focused only on the fact that the organization supported common sense immigration reform—something that a bipartisan majority of this body supported when we passed comprehensive immigration reform in 2013."
