Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the United States Supreme Court: 

“I am delighted to congratulate Justice Amy Coney Barrett on her confirmation to the Supreme Court. America now has another talented and thoughtful jurist that will uphold and defend the Constitution, just as her mentor, Justice Antonin Scalia, did. I thank President Trump and the Senate for this decisive action for the American people. As a parent, fellow Catholic, and member of the legal community, I admire Justice Barrett’s dedication to her faith, her family, and the law. I am glad she will bring those values to our highest Court.”
