     On Monday, April 10, Neil Gorsuch was confirmed as the 113th justice of the United States Supreme Court. He was nominated by President Donald Trump to be voted in by the senate. The senate confirmed him, at a count of 54-45, approving him for the role of supreme court justice. He is replacing former justice Antonin Scalia, who died at a hunting reservation in Texas in his sleep.

     Gorsuch was born in Denver, Colorado on August 29, 1967. He has been involved in politics and law since 1991, serving as a judicial clerk and judge on the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. He recently received a nomination from 45th President Donald Trump to become the conservative Supreme Court Justice to replace Justice Scalia. Gorsuch attended the vote at the US Senate and presented to the representatives the several reasons he thought he was qualified for work as a justice on the United States Supreme Court. Later that night, the polls came in at 54-45 in favor of naming Neil Gorsuch the 113th Supreme Court justice.

     Neil Gorsuch will now serve in a position that he has been familiar with for his entire life, as judge of United States law. However, his naysayers complain that he is too involved in politics to serve as justice for Supreme Court, and think that he would ruin the system due to his political side. This, however, is not true, because our nation has seen Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, two individuals very involved in liberal politics, go through, and not flaw, the system. Now, Neil Gorsuch, a man strongly committed to the republican party, will serve as justice for Supreme Court. Gorsuch should have the ability to judge fairly, without allowing politics to influence his decisions.
