“For almost a year, Senate Republicans broke our democracy and the Supreme Court. Now, President Trump has nominated a very conservative judge who will not protect the rights of many Americans. The Supreme Court is too valuable to our democracy to be used as a political prop.”

Dear President Trump:
Today, Congressman Lou Correa released the following statement:
I have received much communication regarding tomorrow's Presidential inauguration, expressing opinions across the political spectrum. Clearly, while the election is over, the negativity continues. And, our Nation continues to be deeply divided.
We have a new President. Yet, the presidency is about our nation and our constitution, and not about an individual. This inauguration is another event in a line of peaceful transitions of power that are the hallmark of our country.
Today, Congressman Lou Correa (CA-46) spoke on the House Floor for the first time as part of the traditional reading of the constitution. Members read the constitution from start to finish as one of their first official acts.
Congressman Correa said,
“It was an honor for my first time speaking on the Floor to be dedicated to this great country’s Constitution. The Constitution is Congress’s guidebook, and we should all read it each session.”
