Letter: Court packing already taking place


The reason the Republican Congress members don’t openly criticize Trump is because they are getting what they want: a conservative court. This goes beyond the Supreme Court. It involves placing over 200 judges who don’t necessarily qualify based on ability but on loyalty. Should the Republicans get Roe v. Wade, for example, pushed to the states for a decision, these conservative judges will decide against the law.

Talk about loading the court system. We need to recognize what’s going on. Roe v. Wade, LGBTQ rights, going away. A woman’s right to choose, going away. It goes on and on. The right to vote limited. If you are not the right religion or a believer you are out.
