Judge Thomas Hardiman, Possible Replacement For Justice Kennedy, Does Not Appear To Be A Conservative
By Dave Levine
Check out Judge Thomas Hardiman’s bio over at Wikipedia.
Here are some excerpts:
As a student, Hardiman participated in an exchange program in Mexico, and he later volunteered with the Ayuda immigration legal aid office in Washington, D.C., representing immigrants.
In the 2010 case Valdiviezo-Galdamez v. Attorney General, Hardiman ruled in favor of a man from Honduras who was seeking asylum in the United States to avoid being recruited into a violent gang.
In the 2015 case Di Li Li v. Attorney General, Hardiman opined that the Board of Immigration Appeals must reopen a case when an asylum seeker from China converted to Christianity and argued that “conditions have worsened over time” for Christians in China.
Does Hardiman sound like a Conservative to you? He sure doesn’t to me!
The Dave Levine Show strongly supports Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett who was approved last October by the Senate Judiciary Committee as a 7th Circuit judge. She received 3 surprising “yes” votes from Senate Democrats.
