Biden nominates Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman to the US Supreme Court

President Joe Biden has introduced Federal Appeals Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first black woman to the Supreme Court

President Joe Biden on Friday, February 25, 2022, nominated Federal Appeals Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court, making her the first black woman elected to serve on a court that once recognized her race. Disqualified for citizenship and supported secession.

Introducing Ms. Jackson, Mr. Biden called her a “proven consensus builder” who “has a pragmatic understanding that the law should work for the American people.”

“She strives to be fair, to make it right, to do justice,” the president said.

campaign promise

In Ms. Jackson, Mr. Biden delivered on the historic appointment and a campaign promise to diversify a court made entirely of white people for nearly two centuries. He chose a lawyer who would be the High Court’s first former public defender, although he also has the elite legal background of other judges.

Ms. Jackson will be the current court’s second black justice – Justice Clarence Thomas, a conservative, is the second – and just the third in history. She will replace 83-year-old Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer, who retires at the end of term this summer, so she won’t replace the court’s 6-3 conservative majority.

Ms Jackson will join the court as it weighs cuts to abortion rights and will consider efforts to end affirmative action in college admissions and restrict voting rights efforts to increase minority representation.

She will be only the sixth woman to serve on the court, but she will already be joined by three others, including the first Latina, Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

In brief remarks, Ms Jackson thanked Biden, saying she was “humiliated by the extraordinary honor of this nomination.” He exposed his family’s first-hand experience with the entire legal system, as an incarcerated member, as judges and lawyers. and police officers.

Standing with Biden at the White House, she spoke about the historic nature of her nomination, noting that she shared a birthday with Constance Baker Motley Fool, the first black woman to be confirmed on a federal bench.

“If I am fortunate enough to be confirmed as the next associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, I can only hope that my life and career, my love for this country and the Constitution, and the rule of law My commitment to uphold and the sacred principles on which this great nation was founded will inspire future generations of Americans,” said Ms. Jackson.

Ms Jackson, 51, once worked as Breuer’s law clerk early in her legal career. He attended Harvard as a graduate and law school, and served on the U.S. Sentencing Commission, the agency that develops federal sentencing policy, before becoming a federal judge in 2013.

Senate approval

Her nomination is subject to confirmation by the Senate, where Democrats have a 50-50 majority with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaker. Party leaders have promised a quick but thoughtful consideration of the presidential candidate.

The news comes two years after Mr Biden, then struggling to capture the Democratic presidential nomination, pledged in a South Carolina debate to nominate a Black woman if presented with a vacancy. .

“Everyone should be represented,” Mr Biden said then.
