Filipino judge nominated for Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco

A Filipino American judge is one of three of President Donald Trump’s nominees for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco — which is the nation’s largest appeals court.

Patrick Bumatay received his undergraduate degree from Yale, and his law degree from Harvard Law School.

He currently serves as counselor to U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions on issues regarding national opioid strategy, transnational organized crime, and prison policies.

He’s associated with several professional organizations, including the National Filipino American Lawyers Association.

All three nominees have to be approved by the Senate judiciary committee first, before a vote goes to the full Senate.

    Trump inherited 144 lifetime judicial vacancies from Obama, thinking that HClinton will win.It is predicted that by mid 2020, the 673 lower court half(59%) Trump judges will be CONSERVATIVE appointees.Those Judges, are anti-killing babies, anti-union, anti-illigal alien,and pro gun, etc. could cause permanent harm. Trump new team of lifetime judges will radically CHANGE AMERICAN SOCEITY. SIXTY (79%) of Trump lifetime Judges appointees are between 40-50 years old. The 15 confirmed Circuit Court and Appeals Court are in their 40 years old. Supreme Court new Justice Kavanaugh is 53, and Jus Gorsuch is 51 yrs old, will retire at 90 years old. During Trump 8 years term, 2-3 more SC Justice will retire. This is the future of America, a CONSERVATIVE Judicial Court…..You will see now the Democrat are crying, getting crazy and always angry. This is the consequences of election. As GOP said win the WH to pick your own Judges.
