The Senate Judiciary Committee could vote as soon as this week on Steven Menashi’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Menashi was an architect of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ disastrous policies and worked with presidential adviser Stephen Miller on immigration policies that have terrified and traumatized our students, their families, and entire communities. He could do even more harm as an appellate judge. During his tenure at the Department of Education, Menashi failed to protect students from predatory online institutions, failed to ensure student loans are forgiven for public service, and weakened protections against sexual assault and harassment. Moreover, he is openly hostile to education and civil rights—to give just two examples, he lamented that our education system promotes “egalitarianism” and opposed student financial aid because it “punishes” affluent families.
