Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01), senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement after President Joe Biden announced the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
“Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s demonstrated commitment to justice, dedication to the Constitution, and knowledge of the rule of law make her highly qualified to serve as our nation’s next Supreme Court Justice. Her previous experience on the U.S. Sentencing Commission and as a federal public defender would be a welcome addition to the Court. Her historic nomination as the nation’s first Black woman to serve on the Court is long overdue and I look forward to her swift confirmation.”
