The Senate Judiciary Committee had scheduled a vote on Steven Menashi’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, but it was delayed at the last minute—a sign our efforts to defeat him are working. One Republican Senator, Susan Collins of Maine, has already broken ranks and said publicly she will not support his nomination.
An architect of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ disastrous policies, Menashi could do even more harm as an appellate judge. He has 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. Menashi also worked with presidential adviser Stephen Miller on immigration policies that have traumatized students, families, and entire communities. Continue to speak out.
Tell your senators to VOTE NO on Menashi.
