Trump’s Supreme Court pick was announced yesterday. Brett Kavanaugh is a Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He was the White House Staff Secretary during the George W. Bush administration.
He is a @yale alum for both undergraduate studies and Law school.
He is a conservative judge and would be expected to align with the other conservative justices on the Supreme Court. This means that the Supreme Court would have a conservative majority for quite a long time, as Justices serve as long as they desire.
One of his more notable decisions came when he and Karen Henderson, also a Circuit Judge, issued an unsigned order that allowed the Office of Refugee Settlement to keep an illegal immigrant minor from leaving a shelter to have an abortion.
